The next full Moon will occur on Wednesday, October 20,  at 10:57 a.m.and is known as the Hunter’s Moon.

Similar to the Harvest Moon, the Hunter’s moon rises on successive days only about 40 minutes later than the previous day, making the periods of darkness between sunset and moonrise much shorter.

Because the fields were traditionally reaped in late September or early October, hunters could easily see both deer and fox that have come in search of fallen grains by the light of the moon.
