Look up: Full hunter's moon rises this weekend

Moon reaches peak fullness Sunday afternoon


ORLANDO, Fla. – The full hunter's moon will put on a show this weekend across Central Florida.

October's full moon, known as the hunter's moon, gets its name because traditionally this was the time to hunt and prepare for winter.

The moon will shine bright all weekend, but will reach peak fullness just after 5 p.m. Sunday.


A few, thin clouds will be around Saturday and Sunday, but viewing will mainly be great.
