In October 2019, the full Moon is called the Full Hunter’s Moon. This Moon is the one that directly follows the Full Harvest Moon

Why is it called the Hunter’s Moon? Traditionally, autumn was the time of the year when people would need to hunt in preparation for the long, cold winter ahead. 

The October Full Moon has also been called the Dying Grass Moon or the Travel Moon, as a reflection of the natural sights and activities of the fall season. 

This year, the Full Hunter’s Moon rises the night of Sunday, October 13. Hunt for the shining full Moon just after sunset on this day!
