Eleven Surreal Photos of The 2019 Hunter's Moon

If you looked up during the past two nights, you might have noticed that the moon was bigger and brighter than usual. That's because this full moon was not just any old moon: we just witnessed a Hunter's Moon. This is one of the Native American full moon names that occur each month of the year, signalling a change in season. 

These 12 full moons are named for the activity or people they target. Therefore, the Hunter's Moon occurs around this time that hunters should traditionally begin to hunt game in preparation for winter. Since farmers would have recently harvested their crops during the Harvest Moon that takes place in September, the clear fields and bright moon would serve for perfect hunting conditions. 

Today, most people don't depend on the moon's stages to survive, but we can appreciate it's signaling of a change in the season, and if you're into it, the astrological meaning of the skies. Or you can just appreciate the beauty of the moon. If you didn't get a chance to see this years Hunter's Moon, check out these otherworldly photos that were taken from all over the world.

Hooray! North Americans get ready for warmer weather.  Tradition holds that today is the day a groundhog comes out of his hole. If he sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of winter but if he comes out and doesn't see his shadow, like today, then an early spring is just around the corner. 

Although...

A woman in the UK doesn't give cluck what you think about her obsession with knitting sweaters for her chickens.

She's just happy to help them stay warm this winter.

Nicola Congdon and her mother Ann have been rehoming Battery hens for years now. Battery hens, which spend most of their lives in cages to lay eggs, have trouble acclimating to cold weather once rescued.

So these two animal lovers just knit them tiny, adorable sweaters.

They don't charge anyone who might need a chicken sweater, but they ask that a donation be made to a children's charity in Africa.

Some people as far as Canada have inquired about the sweaters.

Lookin' good, chickens. Lookin' good.

Spotted by birder Steve Spitzer, the owl appeared to be 'swimming' in Lake Michigan. Another birder at Loyola Park Beach in Chicago says he saw the Great Horned Owl get apparently forced down into the great lake by two Peregrine Falcons.

Spitzer captured video and photos of the owl, but he didn't catch any of the falcon attack, as he and others at the beach were busy trying to scare the falcons away. Spitzer said bird rescue was called to the scene, but the owl flew away.

Winter is here, and it's about to slap you right in the face.

The Polar Vortex, the weather system with the buzzy name that ruined your life earlier this year, is coming back next week, according to AccuWeather.

This in part thanks to Super Typhoon Nuri, which is some are calling "a growing meteorological bomb" over the Bering Sea.

So what does this all of this mean for you?

"The combination of cold air, wind and other conditions, including snow in part of the Midwest and northern Plains, will send AccuWeather RealFeel temperatures plunging into the single digits and teens. Actual high temperatures may not reach the freezing mark in portions of the northern Plains and Midwest. Such cold will raise the risk of hypothermia and frostbite for those not properly dressed."

"In New York City, it is possible temperatures may not get out of the 30s on one or more days from late next week into next weekend."
