Blue Moonbeams 🌚 & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Blue Moon Tonight! First one since March 31st., 2018! Oh, and it’s on Halloween 🎃 which Makes it very special! The last Halloween with a Blue Moon was all the way back in 1944! We were fighting WW II! 💥 Oh, and it’s SATURDAY! When you combine these things with the fact that it’s also a Saturday, now we’re talking very rare! In fact, there won’t be another like it for 250 years!

Halloween night and the moon 🌝 is Full! It’s also a Blue Moon 🌚

Oh, and I almost forgot… One more factor to consider… Tonight is the night we roll back the clocks ⏰ an hour! Yep, it’s “Fall Back for Daylight Savings” tonight!

Set your clocks back tonight…

So if you add that factor to the Blue Moon, on Halloween 🎃 on a Saturday night – You blow the roof off the timeline of WHEN this will happen again! I’ve been searching and I don’t believe this exact sequence of events has EVER happened before?! Daylight Savings was started in 1918… That led to the question, WHEN will this all line up like this and happen again? I couldn’t completely track it down or do the exact math… But, if and when it does, it will be well over 1,000 years from now! 😳

Pretty cool huh 😎

Blue Moonbeams & Trick or Treat Dreams 🎃

Have a FUN evening! 🎃⏰💥🌚😱👀

Oh, Go Vote Tuesday! Use it, or loose it!

Happy Halloween 👻 🎃

God Bless America 🇺🇸
