The hunters moon is tonight and will start to appear at around 6:15pm.

What is it?

A Hunter’s Moon is the next full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon nearest the autumn equinox.

To put it simply it is just a full moon, but it can often look red or orange, because it’s near the sunset.

Merseyside is expected to be mostly cloudy tonight, so it may be difficult to catch a glimpse of the moon.

However, you may be lucky enough to catch it during a break in the clouds.

The Met Office say: “Skies will stay cloudy tonight and the breeze should keep temperatures up too.

“Some patchy drizzle is possible but many places will stay dry.”
