The term is used to describe the second full moon of a month, which takes place every 2.5 to 3 years, according to NASA. But no, the moon is not going to appear bluish on that day! Even if the COVID-19 pandemic means you can't trick-or-treat in your neighborhood, a trick of the calendar will still provide us with a rare treat: a Halloween blue moon.

Ideally, Halloween night would be comfortably chilly with clear skies and a huge full moon hanging over head.

This next full moon is also known as the Hunter's Moon, based on Native American traditions which marked this time of year as the period for storing game meat for the coming winter.

How can I see the blue moon? Blue Moon has been a significant part of enticing folklores from time immemorial while being a crucial element in the backdrop of dramatic, mysterious and horror stories.

The full moon on Halloween is expected to be visible at 10:49 a.m. EDT.

A blue moon is what you call the second full moon in one month.

But first, the blue hunter's moon.

"It will be like any other full moon which people usually observe".

Sometimes blue moon also occurs in a 30-days month as it appeared on June 30, 2007, and is set to take place next on September 30, 2050. Interestingly, the phrase "Once in a Blue Moon" owes it existence to this rare event.

Meanwhile, the Orionids Meteor Shower is presently active till November 7 and those looking in the east direction from 11.30 pm can witness bright streaks of light zipping across. As per International Meteorological Organisation (IMO), approximately 20 meteors are expected to be seen every hour at the peak. Click the link to subscribe.
