US to experience a rare full moon in Halloween

For the first time in 76 years, the United States is about to experience a rare full moon in Halloween.

In a CNN report, the sky will be illuminated by a full moon- a rare Hallows’ Eve treat that happens only about once every 19 years.

As a matter of fact, it is also been reported that while a blue moon seems rare, a full moon on Halloween across time zones is even more rare.

CNN in the story indicated that this event hasn’t occurred since 1944 adding that the full Halloween moon will rise at 10:49 am ET on October 3, 2020.

However, the full moon which occurs on Halloween every 19 years in some time zones, is expected to occur again in 2039, 2058, 2077 and 2096.
