Luckily for those who are stuck in a busy city or unable to get to a telescope, the Slooh Community Observatory has offered a live webcast through its astronomy broadcast service to show live views of the full Hunter’s Moon. The webcast will also allow viewers to ask questions about the epic phenomenon.
During the live broadcast starting on Oct. 15, Slooh’s Chief Astronomical Officer Paul Cox will provide viewers with a closer look at the full supermoon using specialized telescopes that will pan across the night sky.
Paul will also be joined by Astronomy Editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac Bob Berman to discuss what causes the moon to appear to grow in size as well as point out some its unique features.
For those who may not have done too well in science class, the Hunter’s Supermoon is the first full moon after the harvest moon, and is known for it’s stunning orange and red hues. That’s sounds incredible! It always occurs once a year in October, and this year it’s happening much earlier than normal. Usually, the moon rise about 50 minutes later each day, but this time, the hunter’s moon changes it to 30 minutes, according to USA Today.
The Hunter’s Moon will rise around 12:33 a.m. ET on Sunday, Oct. 16. And depending on weather conditions, people on the Northern Hemisphere should be able to get a good look at it in the sky, as we previously told you. There’s very little time left on the clock! So get excited and stay tuned to the livestream link for the spectacular Hunter’s Moon!
