An incredible full Hunter’s Moon is set to shine brightly this Sunday.
According to The Farmer’s Almanac, the Hunter’s Moon nickname stems from the autumnal equinox and when Native Americans turned to October’s full Moon as a sign to prepare for the winter months ahead by hunting.
In Charlotte, the Moon will rise around 7:05 P.M. (EST) on October 9, 2022 in the east and will set in the west at 7:00 A.M. come the next morning. You can check out your local moonrise and moonset time by using the Time & Date calculator here.
