This year, October's most spectacular show probably will be an old friend: the full hunter's moon.
When that moon rises on Oct. 18, it will be about as round as a rising moon ever gets. In the Twin Cities, for example, moonrise occurs at 6:12 p.m., just 26 minutes before it is at its fullest. As it rises, the moon passes through Earth's light outer shadow, or penumbra, but this eclipse will be barely noticeable at best.
