‘Hunter’s Moon’ greets dawn, winter months in Italian Alps

[CLICK ON IMAGE FOR HIGH RESOLUTION]

Late October’s Full Moon, the second Full Moon after the northern hemisphere autumnal equinox, has been traditionally called the Hunter’s Moon.

According to lore, the name is a fitting one because this Full Moon lights the night during a time for hunting in preparation for the coming winter months.

In this scene, last week’s Hunter’s Moon shines with a rich yellow light, setting as dawn comes to the Italian Alps.

Topping out at over 11,000 feet, the snowy peak known as Rochemelon glows, just catching the first reddened light of the rising Sun.
