    10–11. Januar 2020 Penumbral Lunar Eclipse

    Keen observers in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Africa may see the Moon turn a shade darker during the maximum phase of this penumbral lunar eclipse. Most penumbral lunar eclipses cannot be easily distinguished from a usual Full Moon.

    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=behaviour+...197-3gx&ia=web I thought this was members so edited it 8). Anyhow are we to believe that Man/Womankind are not susceptible to behavioral changes during a full Moon. I think we do feel it but for some reason most don't notice. Spoken to loads of people who've noticed it but yet not common knowledge.

    I think it has a lot to do with how sensitive a person is ....everybody is different..... The full moon has a heavy effect on nature and the ocean tides..... We are mainly made out of water ...so it must have a effect on us also...good or bad.....

    It is said...energies get build up towards a full moon coming up...highest point at full moon night. Then after the full moon night everything calms down again. This is what I did hear and I can feel it myself.

    I always have some extra energy around full moon nights and often I just can not sleep. If I can not sleep I enjoy it to watch the sky, the stars and the full moon

    I guess it has a more heavy effect on everybody who is strong connected to nature or who has a high sensitive personality . It is said ....there is only about 20% of the world population high sensitive....

    you can read on this here : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensor...ng_sensitivity

    Then I did look around to find some more studies on this subject and found something I think is interesting and a proof it certainly has a heavy effect on some people:

    When to See the Full Moon in March 2020

    March’s full Moon, called the full Worm Moon, on Monday, .......March 9.
    Look for the spectacularly bright Moon as it rises above the horizon that evening!

    source and full text : https://www.almanac.com/content/full-moon-march

    First Supermoon of the Year

    This full Moon will also be the first of three supermoons in 2020—the other two occurring in April and May. “Supermoon” is the popular nickname given to a full Moon that coincides with perigee, which is the point in the Moon’s orbit of Earth where it’s closest to our planet.

    Full Moon for April 2020 ---April 7

    April’s full Moon rises on the night of Tuesday, April 7. Traditionally called the Pink Moon, this full Moon will also be a spectacular supermoon! Here’s everything you should know about the Moon this month, including facts, folklore, and Moon phase dates.
    When to See the Full Moon in April 2020

    Venture outside on the night of Tuesday, April 7, to catch a glimpse of April’s full Pink Moon. This full Moon—which is a supermoon, the first full Moon of spring, and the Paschal Full Moon—will be visible after sunset and reach peak illumination at 10:35 P.M. EDT.

    For the best view of this lovely spring Moon, find an open area and watch as the Moon rises just above the horizon, at which point it will appear its biggest and take on a golden hue! (Find local Moon rise and set times here.)
    Super Pink Moon: The Biggest and Brightest Supermoon of the Year

    (Note: Before you get your hopes up, this “Super Pink Moon” won’t actually look “super pink”—or any hue of pink, really. The Moon will be its usual golden color near the horizon and fade to a bright white as it glides overhead. Learn why it’s called the Pink Moon below!)

    We’re currently in the midst of a series of supermoons, with the first having occurred on March 9 and the last occurring on May 7. That makes April’s full Moon the second supermoon in this series, but certainly not the one to miss.

    Thanks to the fact that April’s full Moon will be closer to Earth than either other supermoon in the series, it will be the biggest and brightest full Moon of 2020!

    Full moon August 2020 - 2. to 3. of August

    Another month, another full moon — but August 3's Full Sturgeon Moon is about to bring us some intense energy. In the sign of altruistic Aquarius, this moon, according to astrologer Lisa Stardust, is asking us to seek justice and embrace change. "Aquarius is the humanitarian sign of the zodiac and when it's fully lit up by the glow of the Moon, we will all seek ventures that call for us to be more in sync with the modern rhythms of society and to revel from the past and conservative beliefs," she tells Refinery29.

    I hope this isn't too off topic as it is "full moon related". I would be interested to hear an interpretation of a dream i had last night:

    It was really early in the morning I was driving to work on a bright sunny day. At a red light I looked to my right and saw the moon (only the left side was visible) right above the mountain top (the city where I live is surrounded by gorgeous mountains and the scenery in the dream was a realistic portrayal of my real life commute to work) I then told a middle age woman riding a bike to my right next to my car to take look at this beautiful scene. She nodded and also found the scene beautiful. Immediately after that I found myself transported in a new scene, I’m in the middle of an undefined public gathering and all the people present are admiring the full moon, it is huge and surrounded by massive bright stars between two mountain peaks. Again we are all in awe when suddenly the day turns into night and a purple / crimson aurora borealis like mist covers the moon and the stars, the whole scene is now a beautiful purple / crimson color. At this point I look up to the sky above my head and notice an incredible number of huge yellow stars and in the dream I tell myself “Of course that's what the sky really looks like without all the clouds.”

    I woke up fresh and the dream left me with an overall pleasant feeling but i knew it had a deep meaning attached to it. Thanks in advance for you help.

    Heads up harvest moon...

    Quote Posted by Star Tsar (here)
    Nemesis Maturity

    Full Harvest Moon

    Published 26th September 2020

    According to folklore, the Harvest Moon is the Full Moon that falls closest to the autumnal equinox, the beginning of northern autumn. In the days before light bulbs, farmers relied on moonlight to help them harvest their crops. Many crops ripen all at once in late summer and early autumn, so farmers found themselves extremely busy at this time of the year. They have to work after sundown. Moonlight became an essential part of farming and thus, the Harvest Moon was born.

    There's more to the Harvest Moon, however, than just an old-fashioned name. It realy is special. Throughout the year the Moon rises, on average, about 50 minutes later each day. But near the Equinox, this difference shrinks to only 30 minutes.

    The reason is, at the beginning of autumn the Moon's orbital path makes a narrow angle with the evening horizon. For several nights in a row around the time of the Harvest Moon, the Moon rises almost at sunset.

    And you know what happens when the Moon rises at sunset? Low-hanging Moons are reddened by clouds and dust. Not only that, they are swollen to outlandish size by the Moon illusion, a well known but still mysterious trick of they eye, that makes low-hanging Moons seem much larger than they really are.

    When you add these effects together the Harvest Moon often looks like a great pumpkin. The experience is repeated for several nights in a row around the Equinox. A great pumpkin-colored Moon rising in the east is a nice way to end the day.

    At sundown on October 1-2, go outside, face east and enjoy the Harvest Moon.

    I for one will join in with anyone, I don't care what color you are as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this Earth - Malcolm X / Tsar Of The Star

    What Is A Blue Moon? Fun Facts About The Halloween Blue Moon

    Published 17th October 2020

    Will the Moon turn Blue? What is a Blue Moon? How often do they occur?

    Contents of the video:
    0:00 Introduction
    0:26 What is a Blue Moon?
    1:10 Can the Moon turn Blue?
    2:13 How rare is a Blue Moon?
    2:56 Fun Facts
    4:50 Conclusion

    In this video, we address various questions about Blue Moons. A month Blue Moon is the name for the second Full Moon within a calendar month. This upcoming Halloween (2020) is going to be a monthly Blue Moon. A seasonal Blue Moon is when four Full Moons happen within the same season.

    The moon can appear in different colors depending on atmospheric conditions and astronomical events. In this video, we talk about the Moon looking blue, orange, and red. The Moon can look blue if there is a lot of dust or smoke particles in the atmosphere. When the Moon is near the horizon, it can appear to have an orangish color. During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon can look a dark reddish color.

    Fun Facts:
    A Full Moon on Halloween is always a Blue Moon
    A Blue Moon can never happen in February
    This Blue Moon on Halloween will be near Apogee, making the Moon look 10% dimmer than a typical Full Moon.

    Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse November 30



    We entered the Eclipse perimeter starting with the November 30 Eclipse then the December 14 Eclipse. The November 30 eclipse is supported by the opposition of Venus semi-sextile Sun 8 ° Sagittarius and Uranus semi-sextile Moon 8 ° Gemini. Despite the position of Neptune so much decried by astrologers at the midpoint of the node axis, Neptune is in the semi-sextile of Mars, an influence that will last for a few weeks.

    ♈ You regain your strength and a disconcerting will, remain vigilant.
    ♉ Love at first sight or change of look? A desire for novelty.
    ♊ you are bubbling, watch out for slight cooling, tendency between hot and cold.
    ♋ you lack self-confidence and confidence in the future, develop of inner strength
    ♌ your objectives are realized, the doors open, however beware of crushes.
    ♍ opportunities and at the same time, you are sure of nothing, it is to happiness the luck.
    ♎ you see more clearly in your life and it helps you plan your projects.
    ♏ weird and unexpected situations, it goes where it breaks.
    ♐ You are in the spotlight of the eclipse and rather seek not to make noise.
    ♑ In a mixed period, you choose between the two, but the temptation is not far off.
    ♒ Contradictory effect, from a two-way, duplicate situation, you take it all.
    ♓ It's not the form, but nothing prevents you from thinking about it, it could be worse and make the effort to get better.

    NOVEMBER - FULL Moon Night 11-29/30


    The next full Moon is the Cold Moon, Frost Moon, Winter Moon, Beaver Moon, Oak Moon, Moon Before Yule, Child Moon, Kartik Purnima, Karthika Deepam and Tazaungdaing Festival Moon, and Ill Poya.

    The next full Moon will be early on Monday morning, November 30, 2020, appearing opposite the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 4:30 AM EST. The Moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Saturday night through Tuesday morning. The Moon will be close enough to opposite the Sun that it will pass through the partial shadow of the Earth, with 83 percent of the Moon in the partial shadow at 4:44 AM, the peak of the eclipse. The dimming of the Moon during this eclipse will probably not be noticeable without instrumentation, but for spacecraft at the Moon such as the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) the reduction in solar power will be noticeable.

    In the 1930's the Maine Farmer's Almanac first published "Indian" names for the yearly full Moons tied to the European months. I think it more likely these Native American names were loosely tied to the seasons (especially if they were in use before contact with Europeans). Because most of the Earth had two full Moons in October 2020 (the newer definition of a Blue Moon), the Moon names by season and names by month will be offset until the summer of 2021, which will have four full Moons (and have a Blue Moon by the older definition). Going by season, as the last full Moon of the autumn the Algonquin tribes of what is now the northern and eastern United States called this Moon the Cold Moon, due to the long, cold nights. Other names were the Frost Moon or the Winter Moon, for the frosts as winter nears. Going by month, this would be the Beaver Moon and the full Moon after next would be the Cold Moon.

    As the full Moon before the winter solstice, an old European name for this Moon is the Oak Moon, a name that some believe ties back to ancient druid traditions of harvesting mistletoe from oak trees first recorded by the Roman historian Pliny the Elder in the 1st century CE. The term "druid" may derive from the Proto-Indo-European roots for "oak" and "to see," suggesting the term means "oak knower" or "oak seer." Europeans also called this the Moon before Yule, a 3-day winter solstice festival. In the 10th Century King Haakon I associated Yule with Christmas as part of the Christianization of Norway, and this association spread throughout Europe. Some sources use these names for the full Moon in December, even if it occurs after Yule and the winter solstice.

    When she saw the rising full Moon, she said: "You know what this Moon is called? It's called a Child Moon. Because the Moon rises at a time that the children, they can see it, because they're not in bed, and they might even be outside like we are right now."

    A year ago, 7-year-old Astrid Hattenbach was walking home from school with her father Henry Throop (a friend and former coworker at NASA Headquarters). When she saw the rising full Moon, she said: "You know what this Moon is called? It's called a Child Moon. Because the Moon rises at a time that the children, they can see it, because they're not in bed, and they might even be outside like we are right now." Henry told me about this and I thought it a perfect name. For the Northern Hemisphere the earliest sunsets of the year are in early December. With this full Moon on November 30, the evening before, Sunday, November 29, 2020, is the earliest sunset of the year with a full Moon in the sky, making this the Child Moon!

    This full Moon is Kartik Purnima, celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs (each for different reasons). Karthika Deepam, also known as Karthikai Vilakkidu or Thrikarthika, is a festival of lights that is observed by Hindus of Tamil Nadu, Sri Lanka, and Kerala. This festival is celebrated when the nearly full Moon lines up with the Pleiades constellation (Krittika or Karttikai), and will be celebrated this year on November 29, 2020. In Myanmar the festival of lights associated with this full Moon is the Tazaungdaing Festival, a festival that predates the introduction of Buddhism. Every full Moon (Poya) is a holiday in Sri Lanka. This is the Ill (or Il) Poya, commemorating the Buddha's ordination of sixty disciples as the first missionaries.

    In lunisolar calendars the months change with the new Moon and full Moons fall in the middle of the lunar month. This full Moon is the middle of the tenth month of the Chinese calendar and Kislev in the Hebrew calendar. Hanukkah begins towards the end of Kislev and ends early in the next month, Tevet. In the Islamic calendar the months start with the first sighting of the waxing crescent Moon after the New Moon. This full Moon is near the middle of Rabi' al-Thani, the fourth month of the Islamic year.

    As usual, the wearing of suitably celebratory celestial attire is encouraged in honor of the full Moon. Stay warm, but take advantage of these early nightfalls to get out, look up, and share the wonders of the sky!

    As for other celestial events between now and the full Moon after next:

    As autumn ends and winter begins, the daily periods of sunlight reach their shortest and then begin to lengthen again. The day of the northern hemisphere winter solstice is sometimes called the "shortest day of the year" because it has the shortest period of daylight. It is actually nearly the longest solar day of the year (as measured for example from noon to noon on a sundial). The length of a solar day varies throughout the year (if you're interested in why, I can send a separate document upon request). Around the solstices the solar days are slightly longer than the 24 hour average that our clocks use. Because of this, the earliest sunsets of the year occur before the winter solstice and the latest sunrises of the year (ignoring Daylight Savings Time) occur after the solstice.

    For the Washington, DC area (using the location of NASA Headquarters), on the day of the full Moon (Monday, November 30, 2020), morning twilight will begin at 6:05 AM EST, sunrise will be at 7:07 AM, solar noon will be at 11:56:59 AM when the Sun will reach its maximum altitude of 29.35 degrees, sunset will be at 4:47 PM, and evening twilight will end at 5:49 PM.
