CCN states there is not one, but two full moons tonight. Wait…what? Yes, this is because the little fiery star-like around the moon is known to be Mars. If you are looking forward to a spooky night of Halloween, you might love to watch a Blue moon along with the red star at the side.
According to CNN, “October’s first full moon was the harvest moon on October 1, and the second is a rare full Halloween blue hunter’s moon.”
Of course, it is not blue, but a second full moon in the same month is usually known as a Blue Moon. It happens every 2.5 years or you can say “once in a blue moon”.
So, be ready for the full moon as it will rise at 10:49 am ET on October 31. But yes, you may also have to be prepared for the bad weather. To overcome this hassle, you will need a telescope to watch the full moon on the night of Halloween.
