By BBN Staff: Stargazers will experience a rare second in the month full moon sighting on the day of Halloween, October 31st, 2020.
Known as a “blue moon” because it is the second full moon in the same month, it will be visible to the entire world for the first time since 1944.
“A blue moon is a phenomenon where a full moon appears twice in a month. There is typically one full moon in a month as they occur after every 29 days. But, sometimes, the second full moon is also in attendance in the same month,” NASA explained in a blog post.
The blue moon is also known as the hunter’s moon because it provides plenty of moonlight to hunters that go on nightly hunting trips.
NASA says that next Halloween Blue Moon will take place in 2039 so you might not want to miss the chance to view it this Halloween.
