There’s A Full Moon This Week!

A Full Hunter’s Moon will be appearing in the sky on October 13th.

It will rise from the sky’s horizon right around sunset, meaning it could appear larger and more orange than a usual full moon does.

The Farmer’s Almanac says the Full Hunter’s Moon is one of only two full Moon names that is not tied to a specific month.

It can occur in either October or November, depending on the year.

Legend says this particular full moon got its name because it once signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for winter.

The Full Hunter’s Moon will reach its peak fullness on Sunday, October 13th at 6:08 p.m.
