On Oct. 28-29, the nearly-Full Moon will join Mars one hour after sunset. On Thursday, Oct. 29th, the waxing full Moon will pass by Mars, forming a luminous pair in the early evening sky. Mars is currently brighter than Sirius (the brightest star in the sky), so its red light will be easy to see despite the lunar glare. Use the bright waxing gibbous Moon to find the red planet Mars in late October 2020. This is the brightest that you’ll see Mars for another 15 years. But that’s not all. The upcoming Full Moon on Halloween (Oct. 31) counts as the second Full Moon of October 2020. By popular acclaim, the second of two Full Moons in a single calendar month is called a Blue Moon. Thus we have a rare Halloween Blue Moon. it’s a Moon you won’t want to miss! It’ll be the last Full Moon to fall on Halloween until October 31, 2039. The next several evenings when the sun goes down look east for a beautiful view.
