Rare Halloween ‘Blue Moon’ is a spooky treat for us all – Space.com October 21, 2020 – Space Saturdays October 31, 2020

I saw this announcement last night on Space.com Rare Halloween ‘Blue Moon’ is a spooky treat for us all: https://www.space.com/halloween-blue-moon-full-moon-2020 Worth a read if you are into things space-related. The article has a video and several photos. It’s a longer article, but you can read more in the link.

It’s the first in 76 years, and won’t happen again until 2039!


Skywatchers, ghouls and (especially) werewolves take note: The moon will be full this Halloween night across the entire United States.

This is a truly special confluence of spookiness; a Halloween full moon visible for all time zones on Earth hasn’t happened since 1944, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. It won’t happen again until 2039.

But wait, there’s more: The Oct. 31 full moon also happens to be a “blue moon,” a designation for the second full moon to occur in a single calendar month. Blue moons are relatively rare as well, occurring on average just once every 2.5 years or so. We last saw one in March 2018.
