October month's full moon: Why is it called Hunter's Moon?

October month's full moon: Why is it called Hunter's Moon?

The Hunter's Moon, owing to the orange-red tinge of the moon, is also known as blood moon. Hunting was essential at this time of the year, as it was the preparation for the upcoming winter.

NASA says the full moon will appear at 12:45 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Tonight, October 24, is the Hunter's Moon.

'Since the harvesters have reaped the fields, hunters can easily see the animals that have come out to glean (and the foxes that have come out to prey on them)'.

The Hunter's Moon will appear brighter, larger and clearer than a normal moon and you'll be able to see it no matter the weather conditions, though clear skies are always best for viewing astronomical events.

The moon will continue to put on a show in the sky for a few days.

It is common knowledge that the sun illuminates half the moon.

Therefore, the month of the Mourning Moon varies.

New moon: The side facing Earth receives no direct sunlight so the moon is barely visible to us. The Moon resides in the northern part of the constellation Cetus.

Sometimes October's full moon is called the Harvest Moon, which is the name given to the full moon that is closest to the time of the fall equinox.

Waxing gibbous: More than half the face of the moon is illuminated.

Third quarter: The sun's light shines on the other half of the visible face of the moon. The same report informs that the moon is named thus because it is believed that the hunters, during the month of October, hunted and killed deers in the autumn moonlight.
