The Hunter's Moon rises over the Mississippi River and fountains in front of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church on Monday evening in Plaquemine.

Also known as the sanguine moon, the hunter's moon is the first full moon after the harvest moon, which is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox.
