2020 brings 13 full moons and a ‘rare’ Halloween Blue moon

Mark your calendars now as 2020 is set to produce 13 full moons including two supermoons and two full moons in one month.

Two supermoons are expected on Mar. 9 and Apr. 7. A supermoon appears more significant because it has become full when its orbit is closer to Earth.

In the second half of the year, October will bring two full moons, the first on Oct. 1, making the latter, Oct. 31, a blue moon.

Blue moons appear about every three years; however, the next time a Blue Moon appears during Halloween will be 2039.

According to the Farmers Almanac, different cultures have given variant names to full moons, which are applied for the whole month.

The names often parallel seasons, such as a harvest moon in September or October and a cold moon in December.
