Tonight's moon will also be a supermoon, which means the new moon happens at the closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit.
The western hemisphere is getting a second new moon Wednesday, July 31 just before the calendar flips to August. A lunar cycle typically takes about 29 days to complete, but our months are slightly longer.
It's been reported that other meanings of a Black Moon include that there's a third New Moon in a season of four New Moons.

We normally talk about supermoons when they happen along with the full moon, which can make for a lunar spectacle that appears a little larger in the sky than normal.
"We refer to a moon as a black moon when you can't see any of the moon's face lit by the sun", Ferreri said. When the sky is clear and visibility is good, the moon can appear up to 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter to the naked eye.
However, skywatchers will be able to see the Milky Way very clearly where there is no cloud cover or artificial light pollution due to the very dark skies created by the Black Moon supermoon and the moonset around 8 p.m. But, a super new moon is less exciting for space fans because it is invisible from Earth. "However, the gravitational effect of the new moon and sun combine to physically affect our water planet, which individuals along the ocean coastlines could notice in the coming days".
But following the lunar event, the moon becomes visible again the next day, appearing in the sky as a handsome waxing crescent moon.
