October The first full moon of October is the harvest moon on October 1, and the second full moon will occur on October 31. That’s right: a full moon on Halloween.
While the moon will not actually appear blue, the second full moon in a month is commonly known as the blue moon. This rate occurs every 2.5 to three years or “once in a blue moon.”
Previously, the blue moon was known as the third or fourth full moon In the same season.
In particular, the moon after the harvest moon is known as the hunter’s moon – when hunters used moonlight to hunt prey and prepare for winter.
While the blue moon seems rare, the full moon on Halloween in the time zone is even rarer – an event that hasn’t happened since 1944.
However, some time zones have a full moon on Halloween every 19 years, so you can expect a full Halloween moon again in 2039, 2058, 2077 and 2096.
Halloween The full Halloween moon will rise at 10:49 a.m. on October 31 – which explains why the moon will appear in time zones. This is also the last day of daylight saving time, so set your clocks back one hour on November 1st at 2am.
