The first full moon of October is the Harvest Moon on October 1, and the second full moon will take place on October 31.
The full Harvest Moon will rise at 5: 05 p.m. ET on October 1.
In 2019, the full Harvest Moon took place on Friday, September 13.
The full Harvest Moon provides light to farmers who harvest their crops at night, according to the farmer's Almanac.
The moon will appear full for about three days, according to NASA.
October will also close with a full moon on Halloween – the rare blue moon of the Halloween Hunter.
Although the moon does not really look blue, the second full moon in a month is usually called the blue moon. This happens every 2.5 to three years, or "once in a blue moon".
As a rule, the next moon after the Harvest Moon is known as the Hunter's moon – when hunters used moonlight to hunt their prey and prepare for winter.
However, a full moon occurs on Halloween every 19 years in some time zones, so you can expect a new Full Moon on Halloween in 2039, 2058, 2077 and 2096.
It's also the last day of daylight saving time, so set your clock by one hour on November 1 at 2 a.m.
Place in Mars
in the night, according to EarthSky.
It is actually Mars, which will make its closest approach to Earth at 10: 18 a.m. ET on October 6.
Mars will be 38,586,816 miles from Earth — yes, it's close for Mars – and it won't be that close again until 2035.
Currently, NASA's rover Perseverance is traversing space and preparing to land on Mars in February 2021.
It was launched on July 30, specifically in a time frame that would allow a faster journey between Earth and Mars when aligned on the same side of the sun.
Officials in Lakeland, Fla., are considering a sale of swans in the coming weeks.
The city spends $ 10,000 a year to feed and maintain them. Picturesque birds are also largely overcrowded, causing them quality of life problems, according to Lakeland's website.
Donahay says that because there are too many swans in an area, they often compete for space in the lake and surrounding areas, and they roam the streets and traffic. Two were killed this year by motorists.
Before the sale of the Swans, the city will conduct an annual" health check " on the entire herd.
Although the city doesn't check every buyer's background, Donahay says it tries to get to know every prospect before selling.
“We'll have a great conversation about who they [the buyers] are and what their plans are for the swan or swans. And then we also make ourselves readily available if any of the Swans experience medical issues on the road, " Donahay said.
