Tonight is the Hunter’s Moon, the full moon of October

Do you love gazing at the moon? The moon will full at 5:08 pm, eastern standard time. In September, we had the Harvest Moon. Tonight the moon is called the Hunter’s Moon. The moon will also be full tomorrow night. If we are lucky and it doesn’t rain, the moon may appear to have an orange hue as it appears on the horizon.

You can see a calendar of the moon phases here from the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Laboratory as well as daily information about moon.

At sunset, Jewish people also celebrate Sukkot, a religious harvest celebration.

The Farmer’s Almanac is another great source of information about the moon.

Check out their 1-1/2 minute video that talks about the Hunter’s Moon and its traditions.

The New Moon will be October 27 at 11:28 pm.
