Super Blue Full Moon

Feature Contents

    Thursday, August 30, 2023

    Full moon is meritorious for most practices, especially Medicine Buddha, Tara and Amitabha. Also good for Naga Puja.

    “Once in a Blue Moon”  indicates how rare the blue moons are. For this year’s Blue Moon, the moon will be opposite the sun at 9:36 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Aug. 30 (0336 on Aug. 31), according to NASA. At this time, it will be in the constellation of Aquarius. The Blue Moon will then set on Thursday just before the sun rises at around 6:46 a.m. EDT (1046 GMT)

    How rare is a super blue moon? The time between super blue moons isn’t always the same. NASA says it can be as much as 20 years between occurrences, but the average is 10 years
