The next full Moon will be appear “opposite” the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 12:45 PM EDT. The Moon will appear full for about three days centered around this time, from Tuesday morning through Thursday night
THE HUNTER’S MOON MEANING
The Algonquin Native American tribes referred to October’s Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon because time to go hunting in preparation for winter. Since the harvesters have reaped the fields, hunters can easily see the fattened deer and other animals that have come out to glean (and the foxes that have come out to prey on them).
The earliest use of the term “Hunter’s Moon” cited in the Oxford English Dictionary is from 1710. Some sources suggest that other names for the Hunter’s Moon are the Sanguine or Blood Moon, either associated with the blood from with hunting or the turning of the leaves in autumn. Other Native American tribes, who tied the full Moon names to the season’s activities, called the full Moon the “Travel Moon” and the “Dying Grass Moon.”
This Moon occurs around the end of the Monsoon season in India.
What is known as Hunter’s Moon in the West is called Kartik Purnima in India, and it is a sacred festival celebrated all over India.
Kartika Purnima is a Hindu, Sikh and Jain holy festival, celebrated on the Purnima (full moon) day or the fifteenth lunar day of Kartik (November–December). It is also known as Tripuri Purnima and Tripurari Purnima. It is sometimes called Deva-Diwali or Deva-Deepawali – the festival of lights of the gods. Karthikai Deepam is a related festival celebrated in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Sri Lanka in a different date.
For Hindus, this full Moon is Sharad Purina, a harvest festival marking the end of the rains. For Buddhists, this full Moon is Pavarana, the end of Vassa (sometimes given the English names “Rains Retreat” or “Buddhist Lent”), the three-month period of fasting for Buddhist monks tied to the monsoons. In Laos this is all known as the Boun Suang Huea or Boat Racing Festival. In Sri Lanka, this is the Vap Poya, followed by the Kathina festival, during which people give gifts to the monks, particularly new robes, and this lunar month is sometimes called the Month of Robes. In Myanmar this is the Thadingyt Festival, also know as the Lightning Festival.
In lunisolar calendars, the months change with the new Moon and full Moons fall in the middle of the lunar month. This full Moon falls near the middle of the ninth month in the Chinese calendar and Marcheshvan in the Hebrew calendar. In the Islamic calendar, the months start with the first sighting of the waxing crescent Moon a few days after the New Moon. This full Moon is near the middle of Safar, the second month of the Islamic year.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT THE FULL HUNTER’S MOON?
Most of our monthly Moon names come from Native American and early American folklore. However, the Full Hunter’s Moon is one of two Moons that is a longstanding astronomical term.
Specifically, the Hunter’s Moon is always the first full Moon after the Harvest Moon (which is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox).
The Hunter’s Moon rises right around sunset—and sets around sunrise. It’s the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.
Because the Hunter’s Moon rises around sunset near the horizon, it may appear bigger and more orange than your typical Moon. However, this is just the “Moon Illusion.”
WHAT’S NEXT? DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
From the full Moon through November 3, we’ll experience the darkest mornings of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. See your sunrise, sunset, and day length times.
Sunday, November 4, brings Daylight Saving Time at 2 A.M. Before you go to bed Saturday night, “fall back” on hour, making the change to Standard Time.
