Scheduled air date: 2001 Oct 15-21

We'll have a Full Moon this Halloween night, which will appear like a large orange jack-o-lantern rising over the Eastern horizon at sunset.
(The Moon's position is shown at five-minute intervals beginning just after sunset on the evening of October 31.)

At local midnight, the Moon will appear high overhead, accompanied to its upper left by the Pleiades—also known as the Seven Sisters—star cluster and the ringed planet Saturn.
(Shown at midnight, the night of October 31-November 1, for mid-Northern latitudes.)
