Rare ‘Blue Moon’ can be seen this weekend

This weekend (21st and 22nd), we will have the so-called Blue Moon in the sky. Although the nomenclature is inadequate, as our natural satellite will not change color, the “phenomenon” is considered relatively rare, and it is worth taking a look at the sky.

After the Perseid meteor shower that lit up the night sky in mid-August, and Saturn and Jupiter giving us their maximum brightness, it’s the turn of the Blue Moon. The term, according to the American website Inverse, is used when there is an extra Full Moon in a certain period of time.
