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.

Look up to the sky and behold the stunning full Hunter’s Moon.

Although the moon has appeared to be full for the past 24 hours, it will actually reach its peak on Sunday at 12:23 a.m.

October’s full Hunter’s Moon gets its name from the time of year when deer and other game are fattened, and hunters begin stocking up for the winter months ahead.

Full MoonOctober: The Hunter’s Moon

After the fields have been reaped, the leaves begin to fall and the deer are fat and ready for eating.

Hunters can ride easily over the fields’ stubble, and the fox and other animals are more easily spotted.

(Some years the Harvest Moon falls in October instead of September.)
