There Will Be 13 Full Moons
Typically, we see 12 full moons a year, one for each month. However, we're in for a treat this year because there will be two full moons in October. A full moon is about a 27-day cycle and comes to fruition when the moon and sun are 180 degrees apart, or in other words, most opposite of each other. So October will have a full moon on Oct. 1 and Oct. 31.
Did you know each full moon has its own nickname? Some of the most peculiar names include Flower Moon (May 7), Strawberry Moon (June 5), Corn Moon (Sept. 2), and Beaver Moon (Nov. 30).
