It’s a treat tonight, no, not only because of Halloween 2020 but also it’s the blue moon tonight. According to NASA, the next Blue Moon on Halloween will come only in 2039. But before we get into the details, here’s a detailed explanation about the Blue Moon.

To clear the myth, the blue moon doesn’t appear like blue and If it does appear blue, it happens due to the dust and smoke particles in the Earth’s atmosphere.

NASA explains that these particles should be wider than 900 nanometers to affect the scattering of red light in the sky, which in turn makes the Moon appear blue.

The Blue Moon is a phenomenon where two full Moons appear in the same month. When this happens, the second Moon to appear that month will be called the Blue Moon. Generally, this happens when there are 31 days in a month.

It can also happen in a 30-day month, as it happened on June 30 in 2007. Generally, there are 12 full Moons in a year. But when a Blue Moon occurs, there are 13 full Moons in a year.

If the sky is clear with less pollution, the Blue Moon should be clearly visible in the sky. To note, the Blue Moon tonight (October 31) will reach a peak at 8:19 PM, which should give viewers a great view.

NASA also notes that the Blue Moon this time will appear close to Mars. Since it’s also Halloween night, one can enjoy the view if the skies are clear.
