Harvest Full Moon Tonight; ‘Blue Moon’ Coming on Halloween

A full moon will appear in the evening sky today. The Harvest Moon will appear nearly opposite the sun at about 5:05pm EDT. This brighter, larger moon occurs closest to the autumnal equinox, and was traditionally said to be bright enough to guide farmers’ work late into the night. The full moon will last through Saturday morning. October will see a rare “Blue Moon,” the second full moon in a calendar month, on Halloween.
