Waxing Gibbous Moon at 97.8% full
One would think a Blue Moon on Halloween would foreshadow a coming disaster. However, perhaps the Blue Moon on Halloween 2020 portends restoration and recovery after an already strange and disastrous year.
If you recall, there was a full moon on October 1, 2020, and the moon will be full again on October 31, 2020. As with all notable astronomical events, the world as someone knows it comes to an end, but, then again, a new world opens up for someone else and their self, their being is restored to begin life anew.
As with the few notable astronomical events I can witness, I try to document the events near the day or on the day they happen to keep my own record of each time the world ends and begins again.

Interesting thoughts Tim, and great photos of our one mega satellite. 😊
Thanks, John. It will be really dark when the Blue Moon rises on Halloween. I decided I needed to get photos tonight when there was a little bit of light still hanging around at dusk.
Great images, Timothy. You have really got things down with your camera gear to get those clear shots.
Thanks, Maj & Shar.
It would be great if this event brought good things. Here’s hoping 🤞 🙂
I enjoyed the images.
Thanks, Susan. I think good things can come to pass even on Halloween.
Great post !!, and very beautiful images ❤️
Let’s hope for maximum good! We may have clouds up here on Saturday night, so I’ll depend on your lens.
Hi Lavinia. It will be dark when the moon comes up on Saturday. I’ll most likely only get the moon.
Brilliant moon shots, Tim.
I’m not jealous of course.
Lovely pics TImothy.
Ah, Tm, beautiful images of the almost Blue Moon! Last night it was also in close company of Mars! 😉
Mars was to the upper right, but it wasn’t shining very brightly at dusk. Thanks, Marina.
We’ll go for restoration and recovery…
I’m pulling for recovery!!!
I hope it means better times ahead Tim. These photos are beautiful.
So do I. Thanks, Holly.
Buon weekend 🙂
Fantastic moon images. It’s like the moon is just hanging in the sky. (I suppose it is.)
About the eve of a recovery, I hope we are. In a sense, it may be a long while and the possibility we may not get there anytime soon. Too much shouting, believing pretend truth is real … It’s a matter of controlling what we can control which may be a precious little.
Great shots, I love the branch silhouettes! I’m all for a fresh new start, and the extra hour of sleep will be nice too!
The time change should happen soon. Thanks, Tiffany.
These are lovely photos of our current and especially dazzling moon, Tim. The branches over the moon make it an eerie Halloween moon. Wonderful photos.
I thought a blue moon was just a saying, but here I see a blue moon!
My tree looks very bewitching with that moon. It doesn’t get much better than that on Hallowe’en eve!
Thank you, Tim!
Thanks Resa. The real blue moon is tonight, but it will be up well after dark.
Beautiful images Tim.. and would love to know just what you have documented around such times… Another date I am hearing is a significant one will be the Winter Solstice.. on the 21st Dec….. The End and New Beginning….. It will be interesting to see what your note books logs down on this day to come..
Sending thoughts and appreciation your way Tim… 🙂

Wonderful (yeah, I know, I’m behind… ) Good idea to keep a record of the goings on with the moon…
And the sun and the planets sometimes as well. Thanks, Dale
Your moon is beautiful Tim … 🙂 thanks for the lovely pics
