Jackson, MISS. (WJTV) – This year’s full Hunter’s Moon will be visible Sunday night in Mississippi. It’s the name given to the first full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. The Hunter’s Moon got it’s nickname by giving hunters a little extra light to hunt in the evenings during fall hunting season.
The moon will rise not long after sunset, perfect for late evening viewing close to the horizon. Because of an optical phenomenon, the moon will appear larger than normal along the horizon. The moon may also appear more orange than usual because when it is low in the sky we see the moon through a deeper layer of atmosphere.
