The Second New Moon In A Month Is Called A “Black Moon”
The Second New Moon Of The Month
With every full moon, there’s also a New Moon which can also occur twice in a single month and that is also a rare event for Grandmother Moon. But she doesn’t seem to receive the same spectacular acknowledgement as her brighter sister the Blue Moon.
This month, March 2014; we will see two New Moons. The first occurred on March 1st and the second barely squeaks in on the 30th.

That’s right. NASA has discovered a Black Hole that seems to have taken a nap. NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory caught signs of the area 10 years ago as the Black Hole was eating up pieces of the Sculptor galaxy. Recently NuSTAR (NASA’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array) picked up the area today and found the Black Hole asleep.
This Sculptor Black Hole is about 5 million times the mass of our sun. It lies at the center of the Sculptor galaxy, also known as NGC 253. The galaxy is known as a star burst galaxy and has been actively giving birth to new stars, only to have them eaten by the black hole. 13-million miles away from our own Milkyway Galaxy, this is our nearest star burst galaxy neighbor.
