Posted: Updated:

Skywatchers will treated to the spectacular sight of an impressive full moon this weekend.

WMUR reports the full Hunter's Moon will rise Sunday just after sunset will likely appear much larger than usual when it's near the horizon. 

The term "Hunter's Moon" is the name given to the first full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon closet to the autumn equinox.

Because this time of year is close to the autumnal equinox, the moon will rise at sunset and set close to sunrise.

Sunday evening looks to be clear for most of Kansas. Get the forecast at kake.com/weather.
