Moonlight gazing

 

October 26 – Hunters Moon/Full moon/Super moon

 

This full Moon is often referred to as the Full Hunter’s Moon, Blood Moon, or Sanguine Moon. Many seasons ago, Native Americans named this bright moon for obvious reason; the leaves are falling from trees, the deer are fattened, and it’s time to begin storing up meat for the long winter ahead. Because the fields were traditionally reaped in late September or early October, hunters could easily see fox and other animals come out to glean from the fallen grains. Probably because of the threat of winter looming close, the Hunter’s Moon is generally accorded with special honor, historically serving as an important feast day in both Western Europe and among many Native American tribes.

The October 26 full moon is the last super moon of 2015. The moon will be at its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual – the face will be fully illuminated. The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun.
