A Blue Moon will now not be seen for some years, as the Easter 2018 Blue Moon will be the last to grace the night skies until Halloween in 2020.

On Saturday evening, March 31, the Full Sap Moon rises! And this year, February did not have a full moon.

"Normally we get one full moon in a month but the lunar cycle - the lunar months if you like - are slightly shorter than the solar ones, and so we have an extra moon every now and then", says Bill Boyd of the School of Environment, Science and Engineering at Southern Cross University.

But wait, there's more. It has also been nicknamed the "Sap Moon" by Native American tribes "as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins", according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

With all this in mind, tomorrow's Blue Moon is shaping up to be quite a momentous event, imbued with multiple connotations and a special significance. The moon appeared blue because of all the dust the volcano lofted into the air.
