DENVER (KDPR) – A full moon will fill the sky on Sunday. The moon, called the Hunter’s Moon, is expected to be fullest around sunset.

The Farmer’s Almanac said that the Hunter’s Moon coincides with winter planning and preparation.

“It is believed that this full moon was called the Hunter’s Full Moon because it signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for the cold winter ahead. Animals begin to fatten up before winter, and since farmers had recently cleared their fields under the harvest moon, hunters could easily see the deer and other animals that had come out through the remaining refuse to burrow,” the Farmer’s Almanac said .

According to NASA, the term “Hunter’s Moon” was first recorded in the Oxford English Dictionary in the early 18th century.

The October full moon also has other names. NASA explains that the Maine Farmer’s Almanac, which began publishing Native American names for the full moons in the 1930s, reports that the Algonquin tribes referred to the moon as the cruising moon, the dying grass moon, or the sanguine or blood moon designated.

This is the last full moon before daylight saving time ends in November. Here you can see the hunter’s moon
