A Rare Full Moon Is Coming On Halloween

Full moon

Halloween may seem extra spooky this year thanks to a full moon. It'll be visible in every time zone on Saturday. It will look full the night before and the night after even though the moon doesn't technically peak until Saturday morning at 10:49am.

We haven't had a full moon on Halloween since 1944! And the next one won't happen until 2039. It's also known as a "blue" moon, even though the color won't change. Scientists use the term to describe the second full moon of the month. The Halloween full moon will also be a hunter’s moon, which is the first full moon to follow the harvest moon.

Happy Halloween from the entire Mix 98.1 Family!
