Harvest Moon

by admin on October 10, 2012

Well… it happened, the Harvest Moon of 2012. The Harvest Moon gets its name because it is the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox. The Harvest Moon of 2012 occurred on Saturday, September 29th. When the night of the Harvest Moon coincides with the night of the equinox, it is called a “Super Harvest Moon”.

The Harvest Moon is also known as the Wine Moon, the Singing Moon, “Blue Corn Moon”, and the Elk Call Moon. It appears larger in size because the brain perceives a low-hanging moon to be larger than one that’s high in the sky.

Hope you got to enjoy it in person.
