October’s full moon, the Hunter’s Moon at 5:08 p.m. is the first full moon of autumn.

Last month’s full moon, the Harvest Moon was the closest full moon to the autumn equinox.

Native Americans called it the Hunter’s Moon because they would go out to hunt deer and fox in preparation for winter.

They could easily see their prey by the bright light of the full moon.

The following information about this month’s Full Moon is from the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

October’s Moon rises just after sunset and sets around sunrise, so this is the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.

Tomorrow’s Full Moon (Wednesday, Oct. 23) will reach its peak at 12:45 P.M.

Some Native American tribes referred to October’s Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. This full Moon also is called the “Travel Moon” and the “Dying Grass Moon.”

MOON FACTS AND FOLKLORE

The moon has been looking pretty big and full in the sky for the past couple of days, hasn’t it?

Well, October’s Full Moon doesn’t happen until the Thursday, the 5th at 2:41 p.m.

October’s Moon rises just after sunset and sets around sunrise, so this is the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long, according to the Old Farmers Almanac.

It goes on to say, “This year, the October Full Moon also is a Harvest Moon! That’s because it’s the full Moon closest to the Northern Hemisphere’s autumnal equinox, which occurred on Friday, September 22.”

“Around the Harvest Moon, the moonrise happens soon after sunset for several evenings in a row, which traditionally allowed farmers to have much more light to finish their harvest!”

Some Native American tribes referred to October’s Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. This full Moon also is called the “Travel Moon” and the “Dying Grass Moon.”
