For the first time since World War II War, the full moon will be visible in every part of the planet, and will be accompanied by Halloween.
2020 has been a strange year for many, and another extremely unusual event is coming our way. This year's Halloween full moon will be visible around the world, and not just in some places, for the first time since World War II, according to an astronomy educator and former planetary director. Jeffrey Hunt.
«When I was teaching, high school students believed that every Halloween it moon is whole, "Hunt told CNET.
The last Halloween full moon visible to the world came in 1944, Hunt said. In fact, he has written about the event on his website, When the Curves Line Up. There was a full moon for some locations in 1955, but it did not include the western North America and the western Pacific, he added.
This year's Halloween full moon will be visible in all parts of the world, this does not mean that every citizen will have a view. Residents of both North and South America will see it, as will India, Europe and much of Asia. But while Western Australians will see it, those in the central and eastern parts of the country will not.
"Each time zone will have visibility, except those to the east (GMT) +8 if they have daylight saving time, or (GMT) +9 without daylight hours."
The Halloween full moon is so bright that you will see it wherever you are, while you will not need specialized expensive equipment.
"Walk outside and take a look at him sky. "
Unfortunately, if you try to capture this unique moon with your cell phone camera, the photo will bear no resemblance to the real spectacle. «When the moon is photographed with smartphone, the results can be disappointing", Hunt admits. «A telephoto accessory will help make the moon bigger. Be sure to check if the adapter fits your brand and model. Also, do not overdo it with the exposure settings. Adjust the brightness of the camera so that the features are visible and not affected by the brightness of the moon. "
If you are too busy watching movies, or anything else you can do in the midst of its pandemic COVID-19, you have to wait until 2039 for another global full moon.
«Of course, the full moon will occur in October during the intervening years, not just Halloween", Says Hunt.
