Last month, SpaceWatchtower said: "January could be called the month of the Moon!" See why:

Well, 2018 February is the month with NO Full Moon phase! With only 28 days in the month of February, and with both January and March having a "Blue Moon," this does not allow any Full Moon to fall within 2018 February. And, for months with no Full Moon (i.e. in years February has no Full Moon), the New Moon of this month is known as a "Black Moon."
