This morning, the sky was covered in clouds. And I had no luck seeing the Full Hunter’s Moon. Therefore, I’ll post photos of the October Full Moon from the year 2016. Btw, that Moon was a perigee Moon (Supermoon), two years ago.

The Hunter’s Moon is also the October Full Moon. The leaves fall from the trees and the fields stand empty after harvest. The forest’s animals have fattened up for the winter ahead. The thinning leaves and empty fields made this an easier time to hunt in preparation for the winter ahead.
The October full moon is about honoring that which has passed; the plants and the animals that gave their lives to sustain ours and our ancestors who brought us into being and helped shape our world. Cook old family recipes or retell old family stories in honor of your ancestors. (www.naturalsuburban.com)
It will be only four more day until we will have the Harvest Full Moon. Hopefully, the sky stays clear long enough for me capturing a photo. We suppose to get more rain by Wednesday.

Tonight’s Full Harvest Moon (09-24-2018)
Harvest Moon, Corn Moon, Barley Moon
The pumpkins, squash and beans are ready for harvest. And the bright light of the Harvest Moon allows us the extra time needed to finish the harvest. The leaves on the trees begin to turn color. The Summer’s sunshine gives way to the Autumn’s darkening evenings. The September Full Moon is a time to find balance in our lives, of settling into a slower rhythm after the Summer’s adventures. It is a time of giving thanks and enjoying the abundance in our lives.
Last night, Mars was at its closest approach to Earth with a distance of only 35.8 million miles (57.6 million kilometers), this year. In August 2003 the two planets were just slightly little closer with a distance of 34.6 million miles (55.6 million kilometers). The next time, when the Red Planet is closest to Planet Earth will be in the year 2035.
Tonight, I’ve got a good view of Mars on my street. At 10:00 PM CDT it is clearly visible in the southeastern sky. (08-01-2018)
While Kevin was sanding the doors for our kitchen cabinets, I came outside to look at his progress in the garage. Surprised, I saw Luna and Venus dancing close together in the western evening sky. Since the moon is still in it’s early waxing stages, Venus shines very bright tonight.
