A harvest moon is the name for when a full moon occurs on the last day of summer. It’s been twenty years since this occurred, and it almost happened in 1991, but was 10 hours off. It is called the harvest moon as farmers would note the full moon’s occurrence, and this was used a guide in their harvests, thus the simple name of harvest moon.
With the setting of the sun tonight, the moon will appear to give off a “360-degree style” twilight, illuminating the sky around the northern hemisphere, and putting on a brilliant and beautiful show of nature and space.
The moon will look a little different, according to NASA’s Dr. Tony Phillips as it travels across the sky. The ‘moon illusion’ will make the moon seem much larger and closer than many have seen before.
The moon was precisely full at 5:18 a.m. EDT today, just 6 hours and 5 minutes after the equinox at 11:13 p.m. last night. That makes it pretty nearly the definitive Harvest Moon.
