Look For The Giant, Bright Orange ‘Hunter’s Moon’ This Sunday
In the past few years, we've seen a Supermoon Eclipse, we've seen a Super Blood Wolf Moon, and we've established that most of these names like "blood moon" or "strawberry moon" or "worm moon" or whatever are all just made-up terms.
This "hunter's moon" is special because it rises lower on the horizon than usual, which leads to the illusion that the moon is much bigger than normal. Fun fact, no one is exactly sure why the "moon illusion" happens - there are lots of theories, but none are accepted as proof.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the moon will reach peak fullness on Sunday, October 13th at 5:08pm, but won’t be fully visible to the average onlooker until sunset that evening, which will be at 6:21pm.
Here are some tips on how to get a great picture.
