In fact, it will look like any other full moon, but it's the timing that makes it special.
The month of March is ending in style, treating sky gazers to the second Blue Moon since the beginning of the year.
When two full Moons occur in a single calendar month, the second full Moon is called a Blue Moon.
Whenever there's a 2nd moon in a solitary month, it's usually described as a blue moon.
The reason why March is now boasting two full moons has to do with the fact that February only had 28 days this year. The result is that the moon appears 30 percent brighter than usual and 14 percent bigger than a normal full moon, according to NASA Science Beta.
Some folks are calling this second full Moon the "Blue Sap Moon".
The last Blue Paschal moon was in 1999. Easter Sunday falls on April 1.
This full moon is known as the "Sap Moon", because it happens around the time that sap from trees is being tapped and boiled down into maple syrup. It will be the last blue moon for the next two and a half years based on the calendar of lunar events.
Saturday's blue moon will be the last until October 31, 2020. A large volcanic eruption (ash), or even wildfires (smoke, dust), can cause a reaction in the atmosphere that creates a bluish tinge. Instead, it refers to the appearance of an additional full moon in a given time period.
Nevertheless, we might be treated to a delightful appearance of a red or orange moon as the celestial body comes close to the horizon, AccuWeather points out. "Squeezing a second full moon into a calendar month doesn't change the physical properties of the moon itself, so the color remains the same".
However, despite the name - "Blue Moon" - it is not actually blue.
Full Moon: March 31, 8:37 A.M. The upcoming Blue Moon will later be visible to the west as it's about to set.
