The Moon will be 100% full October 18, 2013 at 4:37 P.M. Las Vegas time.

From The Old Farmer’s Almanac
Some Native American tribes referred to this Moon as the Full Hunter’s Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter.

It rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.

This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse 2013: Earth’s Shadow To Fall On Full Moon On Friday, Oct. 18

October’s full moon has a bonus in store for skywatchers this year.

A penumbral lunar eclipse — so called because only the incomplete outer portion of the Earth’s shadow, or penumbra, falls across the moon — is expected to reach its deepest point at 7:50 p.m. ET on Friday, Oct. 18.

Unlike total eclipses, in which Earth’s umbra — the central region of its shadow — darkens the moon entirely, a penumbral lunar eclipse involves only a slight dimming. Skywatchers should expect to see a much more subtle sight — with a shadow on the lower half of the full moon — like the eclipse pictured below. More from The Huffpost.

Ballantine Books may have been put off enough by Paula Deen’s racially insensitive history to cancel the October release of her next cookbook, Paula Deen’s New Testament, despite enough receiving pre-orders to briefly make the book the bestselling item on Amazon. But the cancellation hasn’t stopped Deen’s fans (some, perhaps, brand-new converts to her cult) from snatching up copies of the Savannah chef’s other cookbooks in the wake of the scandal. Au contraire!

Sales data provided to The Huffington Post by Nielsen show that sales of Deen’s recent cookbooks have exploded since the scandal.

On the week ending June 30, which immediately followed the Food Network’s decision to drop Deen from its lineup, Americans bought a total of 2,950 copies of Deen’s last nine books at the bookstores participating in Nielsen BookScan, which currently covers approximately 85 percent of the print book market. That’s nearly seven times as many copies as were sold in each of three weeks before the National Enquirer unearthed a videotape showing Deen making controversial statements about race Read more…

PAULA DEEN has been widely blasted for admitting she used the N-word and worse and as The ENQUIRER predicted when we broke the scandalous story, her business empire has now crumbled.

But the now former Food Network star has an unlikely champion – O.J. Simpson!

In a bombshell world exclusive, The ENQUIRER reveals that the disgraced football great reached out to Paula from his prison cell in Nevada to declare: “Leave Paula Deen alone!” Read more…
