August’s Extremely Rare ‘Super Blue Moon’ Won’t Be Seen Again Until 2037

In the night sky, a fascinating celestial event is about to take place. A rare occurrence where a full moon, supermoon, and blue moon will all come together, creating a stunning spectacle. This unique phenomenon is a treat for skywatchers and astronomy enthusiasts alike.

Super blue moons are quite special because they don’t happen often. You’ll have to wait for 14 years after this one to witness it again in January and March 2037. The last time we saw two full supermoons in a single month was back in 2018.

These events are a bit uncommon. About 25% of all full moons are supermoons, making them stand out. And blue moons are even rarer, appearing only around 3% of the time. The time between these super blue moons is unpredictable, with an average of 10 years and a maximum of 20 years.

This upcoming full moon in August is traditionally known as the sturgeon moon, named after the sturgeon fish species. In the past, this moon would illuminate the waters of the Great Lakes, where the sturgeon fish used to be abundant.

So, keep your eyes on the sky, as this unique celestial show will be a sight to remember.
