Stretch of unstable weather, Halloween blue moon, retreat time

Blue moon coming on Halloween 2020

Not only will it be what's called a "Blue Moon", but it's also a full moon that not lands on Halloween. This past spring we saw a "Full Worm Moon" in March followed by a pink supermoon in April.

"You think Halloween and you think it's a full moon, but it's hardly ever the case", she said.

The term has nothing to do with the actual color of the moon.

This year is one of the full-moon Halloween years, bringing an additional air of spookiness to the holiday while at the same time lighting up the landscape for whatever trick-or-treaters continue with the tradition in this year of the coronavirus pandemic.

Saturday's Halloween Blue Moon will appear at exactly 9:49 a.m. EST but those who would like to catch a glimpse of it can do so on October 30 and 31 since the moon will appear full on both dates.

Contrary to popular belief, full moons do not have an impact on more insane or unnatural occurrences, though they do add to the holiday's spooky appeal. That's right, a blue moon on Halloween night- talk about epic!


"The older meaning defines a blue moon as the third full moon in a season that has four full moons". "It seems more rare than it really is". The full moon will give an extra spooky feel to Halloween, on a year that is already spooky as it is.

The last Blue Moon in a month with 30 days was on June 30, 2007 and the next one will be on September 30, 2050, Paranjpaye said.

The first full moon in October was a harvest moon, an ode to the history of farmers who depended on the full moon to harvest crops. This will also come with more sunshine as high pressure will be around and will eventually fuel the warming temps.

This extra time accumulates over the months.

Another common misconception is the appearance of a blue tint on the moon during this phase, Nichols said. According to timeanddate, a moon can appear blue if the atmosphere is filled with dust or smoke particles of a certain size. There will be a full moon on October 1st and October 31, 2020.

There were two Blue Moons in 2018.
