A Halloween Blue Moon!

Ghostly greetings! Looks like our fellow werewolf friends will be extra snippy this year. As it turns out, you can see the full Blue Moon throughout this year’s Halloween night, right here in Singapore. But don’t get it wrong, it won’t be blue in colour. It’s just another cute name that we give to the moon.

So don’t forget to open up your windows on the 31st October 2020 (Saturday) for a supernatural moon bath of the decade.

What’s A Blue Moon?

We often heard of the term “once in a blue moon”, but where did it come from? A blue moon occurs when two full moons appear in a single month. This is a rare occurrence that happens roughly every 2 – 3 years. Hence the phrase “once in a blue moon”. Another older definition for a blue moon is that it will occur when you get four full moons in three months (or within a whole season). So the third full moon is called the blue moon. Haha.. Confused yet?

But Why Is It Called ‘Blue’?

It is widely agreed that the blue moon got its contemporary name from the Farmer’s Almanac. The term “blue moon” has been around for 400 years though. So there’s a whole lot of theory going around this popular full moon’s name.
