Hunter's Moon: When and where to see supermoon this weekend

November's full moon occurred early Saturday morning, making it this year's Hunter's Moon.

This moon name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox - one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring.

"This full moon happens just before the moon reaches its closest distance to Earth", said CBC Meteorologist Johanna Wagstaffe. "While shooting the moon, a few hanging LEDs came in between ... and made this handsome Bokeh effect!". The full moon will be visible on Nov. 4 as well, and with all that talk of the Harvest Moon in October, I'm sure you're wondering what the November full moon is called. See?

Full moon names date back to Native Americans, where the tribes kept track of the seasons by naming each month's full moonWhat is a Frost Moon? He was at Port Credit, a neighbourhood in the city of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada ... at the mouth of the Credit River on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

What are the other names given to full moons?

Whether you take the upcoming full moon - which should be brightest just after 1 a.m. EST on November 4 - as your hint to break out the winter coats (the modern equivalent of beaver traps) or your inspiration for some serious end-of-year soul searching, you'll be totally in tune with our ancestors as you do it. May's moon goes by the name Flower moon due to the abundance of flowers during the month.

In July, bucks begin to grow antlers covered in velvety hair.

Astronomers say the Hunter's Moon, which will appear 30% brighter and 14% bigger than usual, will be a "beautiful sight". People who practice Pagan rituals spend the fall months preparing for the winter.

This weekend's moon will be seen lower on the horizon, causing its light to go through more of our atmosphere.

November has its Beaver moon and the December moon is referred to as the Cold moon because this is when winter starts taking its strong grip on the land.
