How about some moon facts? This next full moon, October 7th and 8th, will be a Hunter's Moon and it is named that way because it is the next full moon after September's Harvest moon. You might hear it called a "Blood Moon" . There will be a total lunar eclipse visible to our area and the moon will appear hued red. Look for it in the predawn hour on October 8th!
The September Harvest Moon was not bigger, brighter, or more orange than other full moons. It is special because at this time of year in the Northern hemisphere the time between successive moonrises is shorter than usual. And this Harvest Moon is also a supermoon. 2014's Harvest moon is appearing a month after 2014's supermoon, which is when the moon is physically closer to the earth than other full moons.
Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.
