What exactly is a hunter’s moon?

The name “Hunter’s Moon” is thought to have sprung from an appeal to hunters to go out and hunt in preparation for the colder months ahead. Farmers had harvested their crops during the Harvest Moon, giving hunters a better chance of seeing fattened deer and other animals. 

When is the October 2023 full moon?

The next full moon will happen on Saturday, October 28, 2023, when the moon will be fully illuminated and will be opposite the sun in its orbit around Earth. According to NASA, this full moon is also a partial lunar eclipse, defined as an imperfect alignment of the Sun, Earth, and Moon that results in the Moon passing through only a portion of the Earth’s umbra.

Why is the full moon in October known as the Hunter’s Moon? 

The full moon in October 2023 is known as the “Hunter’s Moon,” but the name can vary from year to year.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, a Hunter’s Moon is the first full moon that appears after a Harvest Moon, which happens around the fall equinox. 

This means that either September or October can be designated as a “Harvest Moon,” and either October or November can be designated as a “Harvest Moon.” The last Hunter’s Moon in November occurred in 2017.

When is the best time to observe the October 2023 full moon?

Don’t put off looking up at the sky this Saturday. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the Hunter’s Moon will be at its brightest early in the evening.

After the Hunter’s Moon, there are just two full moons left for all you Selenophiles out there. They will be visible on Monday, November 27 (the Beaver Moon) and Tuesday, December 26, 2023 (the Cold Moon).
