Add Black To Moon Facts

The Moon – steeped in mythology, banded by superstition, monitor of passing time. Comforting phases wax and wane, from crescent sliver to rotund glory, moon shadows rule the night. On September 30, 2016 a shadowless Black Moon will pass unnoticed in the Western Hemisphere.

When a second new moon falls in a month it answers to Black. All new moons are indistinguishable from the night sky – unseen because lunar orbit briefly bounces sunlight off the far side of the moon. They may be dark, but only become black every 32 months or so when a second lunar cycle begins in the same month.

There are more names for our Moon, than all identified/named moons orbiting planets in the solar system.
