|What is Blood Moon?|
The term Blood Moon is typically used to describe the "Hunter's Moon" full moon, which is typically in the month of October. This is the 10th full moon of the calendar year and occurs after the Harvest Moon and before the Beaver Moon. This full moon is called the "Hunter's Moon" because it occurs during the time of year when the wild game is fat and people start to hunt in order to store up food for the cold winter.
