Blue Moon

Blue Moon

Halloween Full Moon! Was this a spooky event? Two full moons in one month?

Actually, not spooky at all. But, it is a matter of being in the right time zone at the right time-

A Blue Moon on October 31 or Halloween night occurs almost every 19 years, thanks to the Metonic cycle, so it is not very rare. But because of time zones, not every location on the globe gets to enjoy it at the same time. Some parts of the United States, for instance, haven’t seen a Halloween Blue Moon since 2001, while others haven’t seen one since 1955!
