EYEWITNESS WEATHER (WBRE/WYOU-TV) This year’s Halloween features a full moon, the first in decades.
Since full moons are separated by every 29 days, October features two full moons, allowing 2020 to have a total of 13 full moons.
The October 31 moon will be a “blue moon”.
The moon will not actually be blue, but it is known as a blue moon for being the second full moon in a singular month.
Once in a blue moon…
How uncommon is a blue moon? According to EarthSky, a blue moon happens every two to three years. So, not exactly rare but it is rare to see a full moon on Halloween.
The next time we will see a Halloween full moon won’t be until 2039.
