See it! Hunter’s Moon 2018

The Hunter's Moon, owing to the orange-red tinge of the moon, is also known as blood moon.

Full Moon officially arrives at 12:45 p.m. EDT, but it should look completely illuminated all night.

According to NASA, it's the only night of the month when the moon is in the sky all night long, allowing people more time to prepare for winter, hence the name Hunter's Moon.

Keep your eyes in the sky because tonight, a stunning (and massive!) hunter's moon is set to appear this evening. "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)". Things changed slightly in 2018, with the Harvest Moon falling on september 24, just a few days after the autumnal equinox. This is why the October's full moon has been named the Hunter's Moon.

A complete cycle takes 29 and a half days.

Sometimes October's full moon is called the Harvest Moon, which is the name given to the full moon that is closest to the time of the fall equinox.
