You want to keep a close eye on this for werewolves Halloween, for the first time in almost 20 years, will coincide with the most beautiful night of the year, the full moon.
If the sky is clear, spectacular sightings will be seen not only from the UK but around the world, making this a particularly rare lunar occasion.
But that’s not even half of it. There are also Halloween full moons Blue Moon, Micro Moon and Hunter Moon.
When was the last Halloween full moon?
In 2001 when Mary J. Blizzard’s family affair, how you reminded me of Nickelback, and Afroman’s reason I was tearing up the charts when I got up was the last time I had a full moon on Halloween, full time in 2001.
According to NASA, Halloween full moon occurs every 19 years, which means we have to wait until 2039 for the next one.
However, this is the first Halloween full moon to appear worldwide since 1944, according to Almanac of farmers.
What is Blue Moon?
Blue Moon does not refer to its color – it derives its name from a 1946 article in Sky & Telescope magazine.
James Hugh Pruitt is believed to have coined the term in an article entitled “Once in a Blue Moon.”
“There were seven times in 19 years – and still are – 13 full moons a year,” he wrote. ‘Each of these is given 11 months with one full moon and two months at a time. This second of the month, so I interpret it, was called the Blue Moon. ‘
The Blue Moon is the second full moon to appear within a particular month.
On October 1 we had a Harvest Moon treatment in front of the eye, so called because it was the first full moon after the autumn equator of September 22.
What are Micro Moon and Hunter Moon?
This is also the full moon Hunter Moon, the name given to the full moon that immediately follows the Harvest Moon.
Tonight’s moon is also a ‘micro moon’ – as opposed to a Supermoon – because it will happen when the moon is almost farther from the earth before it can start approaching again.
