October's Harvest and Blue Hunter's Moons Empty October's Harvest and Blue Hunter's Moons

The first of October’s full Moons rises on Thursday, October 1, reaching peak illumination at 5:06 P.M. - EST.

October’s second full Moon rises on Halloween—Saturday, October 31—and hits peak illumination at 10:51 A.M.- EST.

Being full Moons, both of these autumn Moons rise above the horizon around sunset. For several days around the time of the full Harvest Moon, the Moon rises only about 30 minutes later each night. This extra light early in the evening is what makes this time of year special, and traditionally is what gave farmers extra days for harvesting beyond sunset. Hence, the name “Harvest” Moon".

October’s second full Moon lands on Saturday, October 31, making Halloween night extra special this year. Plus, the second full Moon in a single calendar month is often called a “Blue Moon.”

Some Native American tribes, who tied the full Moon names to the season’s activities, called the full Moon the “Travel Moon” and the “Dying Grass Moon.”

Harvest Moon is said to be the full Moon which occurs nearest to the date of the autumnal equinox (September 22, 2020).
