Halloween will Feature a Full Moon for the 1st Time Since 1944


For the first time in decades, Halloween will receive some spooky ambience from a full moon.

For many people, the Halloween full moon will be a once-in-a-lifetime event. The last time it occurred was in 1944, theFarmer's Almanac reveals. The next one isn't expected to happen until 2039, according to NASA.

Although Saturday's moon will be a "blue" moon, it won't actually appear to be blue; scientists use the term to describe the second full moon of a given month, which only occurs about once every 2 1/2 years, NASA reveals.
