MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Halloween is going to include an extra spooky spectacle this year with a rare lunar event. Not only will there be a full moon on Halloween night, but it will also be a rare “Blue Moon.”

But don’t expect to look up and see an actual blue colored moon. It just means it is the second full month of the month. This happens every 2.5 to three years, or “once in a blue moon.”

According to the Farmer’s Almanac, howeve,r, seeing a “Blue Moon” on Halloween only happens once every 19 years, which means the next Halloween full moon won’t appear until 2039.
