Heads Up For The Harvest Moon

NORTHERN HEMISPHERE – The Harvest Moon will rise on the nights of Monday, Sept. 24 and Tuesday, Sept. 25, — it’s traditionally the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox of Sept. 22.

The moon is precisely full at 7:52 p.m. PST on Monday, Sept. 24 and should look round and bright for both nights. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, around this time of year, sunset is followed shortly after by moonrise, creating an abundance of light under which to gather the fruits, vegetables and grains of the season. Sunset on Monday comes at 6:52 p.m. and the Harvest Moon rises at 7:07 p.m.
