JAKARTA – The Blue Moon phenomenon will appear at the end of August. The Blue Moon is the closest, largest, and brightest Full Moon of the year.
The Blue Moon will culminate on Wednesday 30 August 2023 at 21:36. As a result of this phenomenon, the distance between the Moon and the Earth is very close i.e. only (222,043 miles), as compiled by Alamanac, on Tuesday (8/8/2023).
FYI, Blue Moon refers to the second full moon occurring in the same calendar month, which usually occurs every few years. The latest blue moon, for example, occurred in October 2020.
Even if the name is Blue Moon or Blue Moon, it certainly won’t look blue at all. The term actually comes from a 16th century expression, where Blue Moon refers to something that never or rarely happens.
The blue blue moon only occurs under certain atmospheric conditions. For example, after the massive volcanic eruption of Krakatau in 1884, the Blue Moon turned blue.
This occurs because a very large cloud of ash and dust has been injected into the stratosphere (5 to 30 miles above the Earth’s surface), this aerosol cloud causes the Moon and Sun to appear blue from many locations in the Northern Hemisphere.
