Between a once-in-a-lifetime comet and a near-miss with an extremely close asteroid, 2020 has been a strange year for outer space. And October is no exception, bringing a rare blue moon just in time for Halloween.
October has brought not one but two full moons — a phenomenon known as a “blue moon” which occurs about once every two and a half years, according to NASA.
Blue moons occur because the lunar cycle and the calendar year are not perfectly synced. Full moons come every 29 days, while most months are 30 or 31 days. The Americas last saw a blue moon in March 2018.
This moon is also known as the Hunter’s moon, which is the first moon following the harvest moon. It was likely named for the time of year to go hunting in preparation for winter. Other names include the Blood moon, Sanguine moon, Travel moon and Dying Grass moon.
A Blue Moon won’t return until August 31, 2023.
