When to See the Full Moon in October 2022
The Hunter’s Moon will reach peak illumination at 4:54 P.M. Eastern Time on Sunday, October 9. It will be below the horizon at this time, so we’ll have to wait until sunset (at 6:17 10/9/22) to watch it take its place in the sky.
Like September’s Harvest Moon, the Hunter’s Moon rises around the same time for several nights in a row, so start looking for it on Saturday, October 8!
As the Moon drifts over the horizon around sunset, it may appear larger and more orange—how perfect for the fall season! But don’t be fooled by the “Moon Illusion,” which makes the Moon appear bigger than it really is.
