I’m a bit late in posting this, so I’ll keep this short — October’s full moon is coming up this weekend. Technically the moment of the full moon is just after midnight Saturday night/Sunday morning, so there should be good viewing opportunities all weekend.

Saturday night moonrise here in Maine is at 5:56 pm, just after sunset at 5:51 pm, which is a great opportunity for the rising full moon and the landscape in the same photograph.

The October Full Moon is often called the Hunter’s Moon in years when the Harvest Moon is in September. Other names I love are The Moon of Falling Leaves, Moon of the Ripening, and the Wine Moon.

Enjoy!
