File picture

A rare Blue Supermoon will light up the UAE sky from 7:00 pm on Thursday.

A Supermoon is visible when a second full moon appears in a calendar month, the next of which won’t be until May 2026.

The expression "once in a blue moon", meaning a rare event or occurrence, was born out of the phenomenon.

Tickets are available for a viewing event at Al Thuraya Astronomy Centre in Dubai’s Al Mushrif Park.
