Goodnight moon.

A full moon in October is known as the Hunter’s Moon. And tomorrow night there was supposed to be a 100% full October Hunter’s Moon. Fun facts from

The moon shows its full face to Earth once a month. Well, sort of.

In fact, the same side of the moon always faces the planet, but part of it is in shadow. And, in reality most of the time the “full moon” is never perfectly full. Only when the moon, Earth and the sun are perfectly aligned is the moon 100 percent full, and that alignment produces a lunar eclipse. And sometimes — once in a blue moon — the moon is full twice in a month (or four times in a season, depending on which definition you prefer). [The Moon: 10 Surprising Facts]

I was really excited about tomorrow’s night 100% full moon. I get excited about silly things like that. When we were walking the dogs this evening, the moon was just starting to rise above the horizon…

It’s hard to get steady photos when the dog you’re walking is pulling you along…

These are the only photos I took of the Hunter’s Moon. I meant to take more but I ended up falling asleep pretty early. I wasn’t too upset because tonight the moon was 99% full. Tomorrow night will be the 100% full Hunter’s Moon. 😀🌕❤️

UPDATE: It was so overcast on Wednesday that we couldn’t even see the 100% full Hunter’s Moon. And that’s a bummer.
