You might be curious what is a blue moon? Simply it’s a full moon taking place at weekend. As Halloween 2020 falls onto Saturday, the full moon on this holiday is called a Blue Moon.

The Halloween blue moon will be full on Saturday and last through Sunday. That’s why it’s referred as a full moon weekend.

What about a Micro Moon?

On the contrary to the so-called Supermoons, a micro moon goes opposite in size and location compared to the supermoon. A micro moon is witnessed when the moon stays farthest from the Earth, causing it to hit the minimal size when observed from our planet. However, it must be a full moon to be called a micro moon as well.

Besides Micro Moon, this type of phenomenon is also called the Beaver Moon, the Frosty Moon or the Snow Moon.

In 2020, there are only two micro moons that happen on October 1 and October 31. Only the one on October 31 coincides with the Blue Moon though.

What you should do on Halloween 2020 with Micro Blue Moon?

In the old days, there were many rumours related to the size of the moon. Every time a special moon was observed, people assumed it was a signal for a significant upcoming event, such as a natural disaster.

Similarly, when a micro moon appeared, old folklore accounts often suggested that it brought earthquakes or a natural catastrophe to the world. It was also believed to negatively affect human mental health. However, with the development of science and technology, we can now be assured that there is no evidence of micro moons affecting human well-being or causing disasters.

Whatever the moon size is, dress up and celebrate this Halloween with your beloved!
