Take a Look at these Amazing Photos of the Rare 'Hunter’s Supermoon'

It could be difficult to keep up with which moon will be available for viewing during the autumn months. Last month, the Black Moon made it’s way into the sky. If you didn’t have a chance to witness it, that’s okay. The Hunter’s Supermoon appeared Saturday night. If you missed that, that’s alright as well. We have plenty of photo evidence.

This Hunter’s Supermoon is also known as the “Blood Moon” or the “Travel Moon.” It rose around 7 P.M. eastern time and was scheduled to peak in the sky in the early morning hours on Sunday morning.

Why the name “Hunter’s Supermoon?”

According to Travel and Leisure, the moon gets its name from “the hunters who used this time of year to hunt and kill their prey by moonlight and stock up for the winter ahead.”

We don’t suggest doing that, enjoy these pictures instead.


If you miss the entire thing, that's okay as well. You can watch the replay of the live broadcast here where Slooh host Paul Cox will be joined by Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac to discuss the origins of the name, and the history of the moon.
