This year stargazers are treated to two rare blue moons, one already took place on January 31st, but there will be a second opportunity to view the event this month.
The moon actually doesn’t change colour to blue like the name suggests, a blue moon is when there is a second full moon during one calendar month.
The Super Blood Blue Moon is seen over Liverpool Merseyside as a passenger plane passes by. #Supermoon2018 #SuperBloodBlueMoon #moon #weather @StormHour @bbcweather @ThePhotoHour @earthandclou @PAImages pic.twitter.com/EkAja6ap6b

Although one has already took place this year, blue moons are actually rare and there wont be another one until October 31st 2020, making the halloween of 2020 extra spooky.
The second Blue moon of the 2018 will be visible on 31st March.
