If you've looked up at the sky lately, you might have noticed that we are in the midst of a lunar event.

The moon has been full since Saturday morning, and will stay full until Tuesday morning. This is called the Hunter's Moon, according to NASA.

The Hunter's Moon signifies the prime time to start hunting as the leaves shift colors and falls from their branches, and the deer have fattened up.

A full moon occurs when the moon is directly opposite the sun.

Look out for the Hunter's Moon Monday night into Tuesday morning for an extra bright sky.
