Blue moon


In a series of bizarre things happening in 2020, add a rare blue hunter’s moon on Halloween to that list.


If you’re outside on this spooky night, don’t expect to look up and see a blue tinted moon. A blue moon happens when there are two full moons in one month. This event occurs every two-and-a-half to three years.


However, according to Farmer’s Almanac, seeing one on Oct. 31 happens only once every 19 years.

“After the blue moon on Oct. 31, 2020, trick-or-treaters will need to wait until 2039 to see the next blue moon on Halloween,” AccuWeather meteorologist Brian Lada said.


October’s harvest moon and blue hunter moon are part of a total 13 full moons we will have experienced this year.


Even more rare, Cnet reports that people across the globe will be able to see 2020′s blue moon, which is the first time that has happened since World War II. People across North and South America will see it as well as India, Europe, and most of Asia.


In celestial phenomena, this year also saw two supermoons and Comet Neowise which is only seen every 6,800 years.


Halloween 2020 also leads us into daylight saving time ending. Revelers in the spooky holiday will get an extra hour of sleep when the official time in the U.S. turns the clocks back at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1.
