According to NASA’s National Space Science Data Center, Halloween night is expected to be illuminated by a rare blue moon (even as trick or treaters might be a rare sight…because coronovirus.). I’ve written about this phenomenon before and if you want to see more, check out this post. But here’s a brief overview…
Full moons typically occur once a month; September’s full moon was the Corn Moon and was just after sunset on Tuesday, September 1, as it rises high and reaches its peak illumination at 1:23 A.M. October’s full moon, which is called the harvest moon, was on October 1, 2020 at 10:05 PM.
Because the lunar calendar and the yearly calendar are not in sync, there is a possibility of having two full moons in a single month with the second one usually referred to as a blue moon.
On average, blue moons occur every two and a half years. The fact that the first full moon in October appears on Oct. 1 sets the stage for the moon to go through its complete cycle and have a blue moon fall on the 31st.
This is the first blue moon since March 2018 and, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. the first time a Halloween full moon will have appeared since 1944. (A Halloween full moon did occur in 2001 but, could only be seen by people in Central and Pacific time zones.)
