"The Algonquin Native American tribes referred to October's moon as the full Hunter's Moon because [it signaled the] time to go hunting in preparation for winter", the Old Farmer's Almanac reported.

The full October Hunter's Moon peaked on Wednesday night but will remain until Thursday night, according to NASA.

It is common knowledge that the sun illuminates half the moon.

Hunter's Moon light on the ocean - October 23, 2018 - from in Long Island, New York. The Moon resides in the northern part of the constellation Cetus.

Every time a full moon occurs it gets a new name.

Waxing gibbous: More than half the face of the moon is illuminated. The same report informs that the moon is named thus because it is believed that the hunters, during the month of October, hunted and killed deers in the autumn moonlight. It's likely that an impact of some type between the Moon and some other object caused material including this chunk to be ejected skyward.
