Look up for the Hunter’s Moon this weekend

Hunter’s Moon

The Hunter’s Moon is happening this weekend. It will look nearly full Saturday night, and Sunday night.

It is called the Hunter’s Moon because it rises only 30 minutes after the sun sets just like the previous full moon the Harvest Moon. This allows for prolonged periods of light which allowed hunters and farmers to finish their work back in the day.

It is also called the blood moon and is the first full moon of autumn.
