Those of you who've been on this board for a few years may recall that I always bring this topic up. The phase of the Moon on upcoming Halloween Night. We're in for a treat this year, fellow Haunters, very, very close to a Full Moon. And, in our location, she rises right around 5:30 PM, perfect timing.

You can determine Moonrise in your town by going to -

That's really cool, Wolfman, thanks for the link :)
Apparently it should be rising at about 3:15pm here!

It IS perfect timing for TOT. And an actual Full Moon for Halloween Night is extremely rare. It would qualify as a "Blue Moon", the second Full Moon to occur in a Calendar Month, by no means a common event.

Guard your props well this year. They say more vandalism occurs around full moons. Add in halloween and I think we are going to have one wild night.

Here's another site that gives the appearance of Blue Moons -

Blue Moons in 2009

They really ARE rare. The next one is December 31st, New Year's Eve, of this year. Then nothing until 2012.
