On Friday a relatively rare lunar event will take place– a shadowy phenomenon known as the “black moon.” Yes, it sounds apocalyptic, but a “black moon” is NOTHING bad.

What is it? A “black moon” is simply a weird nickname for the second new moon to fall in a calendar this month. A “black moon” occurs about once every 32 months.

While a full moon happens when the moon’s Earth-facing side is fully illuminated by the sun, a new moon is when the side we see is fully covered in shadow. As a result, the new moon is basically invisible to Earthlings looking up at the sky, Space.com explains.
