Rare Black Moon Near Rosh Hashanah

Rare Black Moon
The term "Black Moon" refers to the second new moon in a calendar month. Since it is a new moon, it will not be a visible worldwide as the side of the moon that is illuminated will be facing away from the Earth.
Bob Berman, astronomer for Slooh said, "It's the second new moon this month in all of the Americas, but not in Europe and points east from there." The new moon occurs at 8:11 p.m. EDT on Sept. 30, 2016 so for areas in the Eastern Hemisphere, the new moon will officially occur after the calendar flips to October. [Rosh Hashanah Jewish Feast Oct 2/4, 2016]
However, another new moon will occur at the end of the month, giving the Eastern Hemisphere a Black Moon right around Halloween at the end of October 2016. [Last time the earth had a black moon was March of 2014 - it won't happen again in the western hemisphere until July 2019.]
"There shall be signs in the sun, in the moon, in the stars; and
upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things
which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken."
