For the first time since 1944, people world-wide will be able to see a blue moon on October 31st – Halloween. “The next full moon on Halloween that will be visible worldwide is expected in 2077, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.” Blue moons are, sadly, not actually blue, and refer to the occurrence of a second full moon during one month.
With the surge in Covid cases, we’re all looking for alternate ways to mark this holiday safely. Why not moon-gaze in your back yard?
