The first full moon of fall was out last night and in some areas the Thompson-Okanagan the skies cleared enough to get a glimpse of the bright orb.

The Hunter's Moon was visible last night, Oct. 20, depending on the local weather, throughout the northern hemisphere.

EarthSky.org said the name Hunter's Moon is rooted in fall hunting where the bright October moon would provide light in the evenings for hunters to finish their work.
