The Hunters Moon

The full Moon in October is traditionally referred to as the Hunters Moon. It is the full moon that follows the Harvest Moon in September. In medieval times people after having gathered in the harvest would use the light from the Hunters Moon to hunt animals to provide meat for their store over the winter months.

Full Moon this month will be on the 19th October, there will also be a partial eclipse of the Moon on the night of 18/19th October. Sadly only being a partial eclipse it will be difficult to notice the effects of the Moon passing into the shadow of the Earth.
