  • The Hunter's Moon is set to take place at 12:45 p.m. EDT on Wednesday

It is a slight variant of the full moon and is said to have traditional significance.

The origins of the Hunter's moon hark back to the First Nations of North America.

Full Moon officially arrives at 12:45 p.m. EDT, but it should look completely illuminated all night.

A stunning Hunter's Moon, also known as a Supermoon, is forecast to appear right around sunset. Other Native American tribes, who tied the full Moon names to the season's activities, called the full Moon the "Travel Moon" and the "Dying Grass Moon". Eastern on Wednesday and remain full through the rest of Wednesday night. This year the full moon will be visible from Tuesday through Thursday, October 23-25.


The October Full Moon gets its name from game fattening up this time of year before winter, and the Hunter's Moon comes just a few weeks before the Leonid Meteor Shower.

Last night the full Hunter's Moon graced the skies, shining bright celestial light across the world.

'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)'.

Now, these names are not random, rather there is always a reason behind the names of the full moons. We can only see the full moon when it is positioned opposite to the sun. It is also known as blood moon due to the orange-red tinge of the moon. Things changed slightly in 2018, with the Harvest Moon falling on september 24, just a few days after the autumnal equinox.
