This particular moon is so called because it peaks in the Fall, at a time when the leaves are falling from trees and crops have been harvested, creating the ideal conditions for hunters, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

The moon has been shining brightly during the early evenings this October, but stargazers were treated to a particularly special lunar event on Wednesday night.

The full moon will appear at 10:15 pm.

The best spots to view the harvest moon would be a park or another spot outside of the city area such as Porteau Cove.

Hunters would use the moonlight to track down deer which had fattened up over the summer. It will look bigger and orange when you see in the early evening, but it's not actually bigger or brighter. For example, in southeastern Asia, October is usually known as the end of monsoon season, so that influenced the nickname for the month's full moon.

Because of the tilt and shape of its orbit, we see the moon from slightly different angles over the course of a month, even though its "face" remains constant.

Other names include the travel moon, dying grass moon, blood moon, or sanguine moon.

Waxing gibbous: More than half the face of the moon is illuminated. This year the full moon will be visible from Tuesday through Thursday, October 23-25. It's likely that an impact of some type between the Moon and some other object caused material including this chunk to be ejected skyward.
