Blue moon: Where to watch Saturday's full moon, why is it special

Unfortunately, there won't be a gorgeous robin's-egg orb in the sky the night before Easter (PSA: Easter is this Sunday), just a typical, pearly grey full moon. However, the real lunar phenomenon by the same name will also occur Saturday (March 31) for the second and final time in 2018, according to Live Science. The traditional definition of a Blue Moon was reserved for the third full moon in a season that has four full moons, which happens in years that have 13 full moons instead of the usual 12.

Since it takes about 29.5 days for the moon to complete its cycle (an interval known as a "synodic" month), this year the entire month of February passed in between full moons. The only factor the moon would certainly show up to have a blue color to it would certainly be if there was some kind of bit in the ambience filtering system the light as well as triggering it to show up blue. The March Blue Moon has one more meaning that not many people may be familiar with. The moon will be visible in United Kingdom at 7:30pm.
