Rare Micro Blue Moon will rise on Halloween as full Hunter’s Moon

This weekend’s full moon will not only be a Blue Moon – which is what we call the second full moon in a calendar month – but it’s going to be a Micro Moon, too, according to NASA. What’s that? Think of it as the opposite of those “supermoons” that we’ve been getting used to lately.

This Saturday’s full moon is also a rare because it’s rising on Halloween for the first time in 76 years. The last time we had a full moon on All Hallows’ Eve was 1944, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

The next time all U.S. time zones will see a full moon is 2039, so don’t miss your chance.

While the moon officially becomes full on Saturday, it will appear full beginning Thursday night and last through Sunday. So it will feel like a full moon weekend.
