The last sighting of the super blue moon until 2037 will be on August 30. Here’s how to see it

August is winding down, but it still has a rare event to offer skywatchers: the second full moon.

The full moon that will rise on Wednesday, August 30, will also be special, as it is the union of a supermoon and a blue moon, or “super blue moon.” However, the Moon will not appear particularly blue at this time. The term “blue moon” has nothing to do with color, but rather refers to two full moons occurring in the same calendar month (as in this case), or the third full moon in a season with four full moons. Meanwhile, a supermoon refers to a full moon that occurs when the moon is closest to Earth in its orbit, causing it to appear slightly larger and brighter.
