The Harvest Moon
September month full moon was named Harvest Moon because many of the native American’s tribes’ staple foods were ready to be harvested around this time. It was sometimes named the Corn Moon because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested.
This is the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox (about September 23) when the angle of the moon’s orbit relative to the Earth’s horizon is at its minimum, causing the full moon to rise above the horizon much faster than usual. Since the difference of the moon’s rising time on successive nights barely varies, the moon appears to rise at nearly the same hour for several nights in succession. Because the harvest moon, like any full moon, must rise near the hour of sunset, harvest workers in the Northern Hemisphere may be aided by bright moonlight after sunset on several successive evenings. A similar effect is observed in corresponding southern latitudes around March 21…
