Black Moon

black moon of February 2015 ©www.hoodphotography.com

A black moon occurs during certain astronomical events. In the case of this past weekend, it was because this was the third new moon in a season that has four of them. It is pretty amazing when just a sliver of the white crescent moon is visible against the black shadow that the Earth creates on the lunar surface.
