Hunter's Moon Tonight (Oct 22)

Hey Space Placers!

Make sure you get outside tonight and check the Full Moon. Because it is the first Full Moon after the Harvest Moon it is traditionally known as the Hunter's Moon.

The name comes from the fields being harvested and therefore bare which would make it easy for hunters by the light of a brilliant Full Moon to hunt game. This was in a time when farmers and others would try to get fresh game for dinner.

Also, check out my on air interview with WTOP radio about yesterday's lunar news:

I hope to have a pic for you.
