The Harvest Moon rises over the Giralda, the tower of Sevilla’s Cathedral

THE Harvest Moon will shine bright tomorrow night.
This full moon, which is also known as the Blood Moon or Hunter’s Moon, guided hunters ahead of the lean winter.

It will fall on October 5 and be at its brightest at 8.40pm in Spain.

It usually comes around in September, but every three years it falls in October.

This particular name is given to the full moon which is closest to the September equinox, but as the astronomical seasons do not match up with the lunar month, it can sometimes fall in October.
