Black moon to make rare night sky appearance
Celestial event to occur Friday night
MIAMI – A rare celestial event will take place Friday night, but it'll be pretty difficult to actually see.
For the first time since 2014, a black moon will rise in the night sky.
A black moon is the second new moon of the month, occurring about once every two-and-a-half years.
Unfortunately, because the sun is shining on the side facing away from Earth, all we'll see is a shadow.
And as we all know, a shadow combined with a black sky will make the moon practically invisible.
The last black moon appearance happened in March 2014.
The new moon will appear Friday night starting at 8:11 p.m. EDT and will be (in)visible only in the Eastern Hemisphere for only the Americas to enjoy.
Europe will miss out on not seeing what we're not seeing.
