Full Moon occurs on the 16th at 12:23 am Eastern Daylight Time. Octoberâ€™s Full Moon is popularly known as the Hunterâ€™s Moon. The geometry of the Moonâ€™s path in the sky is similar to last monthâ€™s Harvest Moon, so the interval between successive moonrises around the time of Full Moon causes Luna to appear to rise at nearly the same time for a few nights. In September this phenomena was used by farmers to use the light of the rising Moon to help them bring in more crops. This month hunters have a bit of extra light to pursue game across the stubble of the harvested fields.
