Once in a blue moon – full on Halloween; and clocks go back too

The first Halloween full moon since 1974 unfolds tonight and won’t shine again on Oct. 31 until 2039. The blue Hunter moon is part of its name, but it will look more yellow, or orange, and is the smallest of the year’s full moons. It’s called blue as the second full moon in a month.

Clocks ‘fall back’ an hour Sunday at 2 a.m. as Daylight Saving Time ends – making it lighter earlier in the morning, and darker, and darker earlier in the evening.

Prince Edward County Fire and Rescue reminds this is also a good time to replace smoke detector batteries, test and check CO detectors – and check manufacture dates on them as most need replacing at five or 10 years.

Most cell phones and computers will change the time on their own, but clocks and appliances in homes may have to be changed manually.

People who experience a ‘jet lag’ feeling when the clocks change in spring and fall are watching the Ontario government and others who may be putting an end to “Spring Forward, Fall Back”.

A new private members’ bill in its second reading would implement permanent daylight saving time.
