Hunter's Moon


I was hoping for a clear sky this evening, but not. The Hunter's Moon did peak out at one point, but not enough to light up my view of the Okatie River.  Still, a beauty of an evening :)

My favorite star gazing web site says:
The Hunter's Moon highlights the sky tonight. In most years the Harvest Moon comes in September, with the Hunter's Moon in October. But this year October's full Moon was closer to the fall equinox, so both the Harvest and Hunter's moons were pushed back a month.

  2. Thanks, Maree. As far as I know it's the November full moon. It looks like there might me another toward the end of the month so who knows :) The Farmer's Almanac says this moon is also called the Beaver Moon or sometimes referred to as the Frosty moon. These names date back to Native Americans, of what is now the northern and eastern US.
