Black Solar Sky Eve
A Super New Moon occurred on the 25th this month. Moon experts say it was the biggest Moon because it was at its perigee to the earth but invisible to the naked eye as the glare of the sunlight washes it out.
Thought I'd write about it juxtaposing mythical gods in a fantasy poem,
their reactions to this galactic event anticipating a grander show -
the Total Solar Eclipse coming in August this year, The Black Solar Sky across the USA.

Thanks Brod for liking. Moon experts call one New Moon a Black Moon if there are more than 12 New Moons in a year.
I called the Super New Moon that occurred on the 25th of May a "Black Moon" simply because it was not seen and blended in the dark night sky, normal for New Moon. Super because of its size being closest to earth. However, this year's total solar eclipse in August will be an event not to miss because a true Black Moon will be triggering it. Here's Google: Great American Eclipse 2017
On August 21, 2017, a Black Moon will cause a total solar eclipse which is an extremely rare combination.
This eclipse will be a spectacular sight and will be visible all across the United States. This has earned it the nickname the Great American Eclipse, although it will also be visible in other countries.
