The Last Furlong

Hunter’s moon? Never heard of it? Me neither

Leave a comment

Last night and tonight, it is “Hunter’s Moon”. I’ve never heard of that. Last month was “Harvest Moon” – I’d never heard of that either. It goes like this –

Harvest Moon – Autumn – reaping crops – good night-light for working in the fields.

Hunters Moon – Autumn – hunting – good night-light for catching bunnies ‘n stuff before the winter.


It will be at its highest point in the middle of the night – more precisely, at 12.23am (British Summer Time) on Sunday, October 16 and again at 1.23am (British Summer Time) on Monday, October 17.

It will look especially bright and will appear larger than usual. Link

Here is MY photo of Harvest Moon. I doubt if Hunter’s Moon will look much different. So The Furlongs will be staying in bed.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
