Chance to witness the blue moon this coming weekend.
Halloween Blue Moon to grace tonight’s skies!
The cosmos has a wonderful treat in store for the world this Halloween night as the world’s first Blue Moon since 1944 will grace the sky.
Unfortunately, the term does not mean that the moon will actually appear to be blue in colour but rather refers to an incident when a full moon appears in the sky twice in one month.
This month the first full moon was on October 1 and this second one on Halloween, October 31 and will be the first time since 1974 when it will be visible from the UK and Ireland.
David Moore, and astronomer, said, “The Halloween full moon probably only happens a few times every century and it won’t happen again in Ireland and the UK until 2039,”
“You associate Halloween with ghosts and ghouls, but this year it’ll also be werewolves because of the full moon.”
“So, it’s good fun for the general public and hopefully it’ll get everyone excited.”
