The moon reached its peak earlier Sunday at 3:54 p.m. CST. Mostly cloudy skies might make viewing the full moon a bit difficult, but you might be able to sneak a peek of the moon between the clouds.

The October full moon is named for the time of year when animals prepare for the upcoming colder weather, as well as the start of hunting season.
