The October 2022 Full Hunter Moon rises tonight (October 9)

The October full moon, the hunter’s moon, happens on Sunday (October 9) when the moon seems giant and orange on the horizon at sundown.

Sky watchers will have the ability to see the virtually full moon for a number of nights earlier than and after the hunter’s moon – which takes its title from the truth that it as soon as signaled the time to hunt in preparation for the approaching winter.
