Hunter's moon brings seasonal nuisance Wednesday – News – The Palm Beach Post



The October Hunter's Moon rises on Wednesday with swelling tides, which in some areas along the coast light floods Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach County

The moon will be full at exactly 12:45, but will not appear above the eastern horizon until 19:07. It is the second full moon after the autumn equinox.

If the moon were generous, he would not outshine Uranus, who will sit on his left. But the Earth's only permanent natural satellite is an attention-grabber, which means that Uranus can not be seen with the naked eye, columnists Bruce McClure and Deborah Byrd said in EarthSky.org online magazine.

"Even on a dark moonless night, Uranus appears ̵

1; at best – as a faint light spot for the eye alone," they wrote. "They need an extraordinary vision to see this distant world without optical help, even under the best conditions."

The seasonally higher tides will also rise this week, but National Weather Service meteorologists in Miami said it was not. Large floods are expected to occur.

Look for the tide between Wednesday and Thursday. It is predicted that the water level will be up to one meter above normal.

The Wednesday full moon is called the Hunter's Moon, though how and why this name is unknown. The Old Farmer's Almanac says the moon was named by Native Americans because October was a time to hunt to prepare for the winter. It is also called the "Travel Moon" and the "dying Grasmond".
