Astronomical events of interest for October 2015

The name for October is derived from the Latin “Octo” meaning “eight” which came after September (derived from Latin for seven) the seventh month of the Roman calendar until 46 BC. In 46 BC the beginning of the year was changed to from March to January.

The traditional full moon name for October is the “Cold Moon”. In most years the Moon is also called the “Hunter’s Moon” because it is the first full moon after the fall equinox, but it could also be a “Harvest Moon”.  The “Harvest Moon” is somewhat unique in that the name is assigned to the full moon closest (before or after) to the autumn equinox. This means the “Harvest Moon” can happen in October or September. 

Other names include the "Blood Moon", or "Sanguine Moon" referring to the blood of the hunt, not the color of the Moon during a lunar eclipse.

To the Natchez it’s the “Turkey Moon”. The Oglala Sioux called it the “Moon of the Changing Season”. The Cheyenne named it “The Moon when Water Freezes at the Edge of the Stream”. The Taos call it “The Corn Ripe Moon” and the Oto call it “Deer Rutting Season Moon”.
