  • The moon is not going to look blue Debiprosad Duari the director of MP Birla Planetarium said. “In modern parlance a blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month

A Blue Moon is rare but what would you say when it coincides with Halloween? For the first time since 1944 Halloween will boast a big handsome full moon.

Even though it's called a Blue Moon, the moon doesn't really look blue.

Throughout October viewers in North America, including west Texans, have experienced a special lunar event where the month has seen two full moons, including the Harvest Moon and the Hunter's Moon. So stay up late and take in the FULL moon.

Calendrical Blue Moon: The second full moon to occur within in a specific calendar month.

Astronomy Ireland has told its readers that that "Saturday is also the date that the distant dim planet Uranus is at opposition to the Sun (and effectively a Full Moon is when the Moon is at opposition with the Sun), so, Uranus is close to the Moon that night also". Full moons are separated by 29 days, while most months are 30 or 31 days long; so it is possible to fit two full moons in a single month.

The last time when Blue Moon occured in a month with 30 days was on June 30, 2007 and the next one is expected to happen on September 30, 2050.

Blue Moon is also known as the Hunter's Moon because it provides plenty of moonlight for hunters to collect meat for the winters. Whenever a Blue Moon occurs, the total number of full moons for that particular year becomes 13 which usually remains 12 under normal circumstances. "So, the only time one month can have two full moons is when the first full moon happens in the first few days of the month, in this case on October 1". The three super moons were seen in March, April and May.

When will it be visible in India?

The Blue Moon will occur on October 31 at 8.19 pm.
