Where to watch Saturday's full moon, why is it special — Blue moon

The fact that it's a Paschal Moon means it's the first full moon of spring.

The interesting fact is March 31 is the second time when we have the chance to see the Blue Moon since the beginning of the year.

Full moons themselves are not rare, as they occur nearly every 29 days, but a blue moon is a rare event. Under the most popular definition today, a Blue Moon is the second full moon in a calendar month. Indeed, this year, the Easter is celebrated on April 1, the next Sunday after the "Paschal" moon. So, to make up for this lack, March ended up with an extra full moon.

Stargazers, get your binoculars ready: a blue moon will grace the sky this weekend, marking the end of what has been a breathtaking month.

This year's Paschal Moon is indeed quite special, and it also happens to be a Blue Moon.

There are plenty of other factors that set the exact date of Easter, including Golden Numbers and when the Equinox falls, so the Paschal Moon is not an exact science. The name originates from that in March, sap begin to stream from sugar maple trees, inning accordance with The Old Farmer's Almanac. The rare celestial event will be the last one until 2020. It will be the last blue moon for the next two and a half years based on the calendar of lunar events.
