Blue Moon

Tomorrow we have a Blue Moon, a full moon. While there is no color change, the name of a color refers more to its rarity. You won’t see anything unusual when you look up this weekend.

A Blue Moon occurs on the second full moon of a month. We had a full moon at the start of October and this one comes on the last day of the month Halloween. What is truly rare is that this one falls on Halloween night, when little gobblins and witches are roaming. In fact, if you do the math every time the moon is full on Halloween Night, it is a Blue Moon.

The next time there are two full moons in the month will be August 2023.
