Full Hunter’s Moon of October 2022 rises tonight (Oct. 9)

October’s full moon, the Hunter’s Moon, occurs on Sunday (Oct. 9) when the moon will appear large and orange-hued on the horizon at around sunset.

Skywatchers will be able to see the nearly full moon for several nights before and after the Hunter’s Moon  —  which gets its name from the fact it once signaled a time to hunt in preparation for the coming winter.
