Driving on a ribbon of moonlight. This trucker’s headlights reflected brightly off HWY16 West of McBride as the nearing Hunters moon was shining even brighter lighting up the sky. Because the Hunter’s Moon rises lower than usual from the horizon, it will appear much larger and more orange due to an effect known as the “moon illusion. October’s full moon is called the Hunter’s Moon because it’s the time of year when hunters began collecting food and storing it for the winter months ahead, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. The Full Moon was on Sunday, October 9th. The New Moon will happen later in October on Tuesday, October 25th. Photo was taken on October the 7th. / SANDRA JAMES
