An October full moon called the Hunter's Moon rises over NYC

If skies are clear, the full Hunter's Moon could have an orange-like glow, right in time for Halloween. Wait, yes we do. But big, beautiful, bright orange moons are great too.

During that time, it may appear fuller and more orange than a normal full moon.

Keep your eyes on the evening sky Sunday as the Hunter's Moon will rise overhead for a colorful show that's ideal for this time of year.

The full Hunter's Moon, which is a cool name for a full moon, will rise Sunday night right at 5:17 p.m. EDT and when it's close to the horizon, it will look larger in size, WMUR-TV reported. Skywatchers will be able to track the full Hunter's Moon throughout the sky from Sunday, October 13 to Monday, October 14. If you want to catch this, head out to our area beaches, moonrise on Saturday is at 6:45p.m. and on Sunday at 7:15 p.m. Sunday's moonrise will be more impressive since it occurs just after sunset.

This weekend the moon will indeed come out of the keen city, staying low to the horizon and reflecting earthly light.

Tania de Sales Marques, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich, tells Country Living it's called the Hunters Moon because of the "early European and Native American tribes who would associate October's full moon with the season for hunting game and preparing for the winter months".
