Rare blue moon on Halloween: Here’s how to see it


SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — On Saturday, the skies will bless us with another full moon on Halloween.

It’s the second full moon we’ve seen this month and it will be visible practically anywhere with a clear view of the sky.

Astronomer Gerald McKeegan with the Chabot Space and Science Center says this “Blue Moon” is very rare.

The last two times we saw a full moon on Halloween night were in 2001 and 1944.

Chabot Space and Science Center is hosting a virtual telescope viewing of the Blue Moon starting at 9pm tonight until 10:30pm on their Facebook page.

Chabot’s astronomers will answer questions about the rare event.
