WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Kansans will be treated to a full moon Sunday night.

The large, orange Hunter’s moon is named for being the first moon after the Harvest moon.

Traditionally, after the fields were reaped, animals were easier to spot. So hunters were able to stock up for winter.

The moon rose during sunset, so it looked orange in the sky and looked bigger than normal because of an optical illusion.
