The Harvest Moon and Hunter’s Moon
Humans through the ages have always found autumn’s full moons to be creepy, and not without good reason. But this year the moon will be extra exciting. The month starts with the Harvest Moon on October 1st and a second Blue Moon on Halloween, October 31st. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon that falls closest to the Autumnal Equinox on September 22nd.

This makes the first Full Moon the Harvest Moon and the second the Full Hunter’s Moon..
