Full Harvest Moon - September 26, 2007

Hi all:

Whew! I almost missed this one! I remembered last night as I was driving home from work and saw a huge looming moon visible in the East during twilight.

Anyhoo, September's full moon occurs Wednesday at 3:45 p.m. Watch for it in the Eastern sky.

Here's the info from Space.com:

Sept. 26, 3:45 p.m. EDT - The Full Harvest Moon. Always the full Moon occurring nearest to the Autumnal Equinox. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice - the chief Indian staples - are now ready for gathering.

We have clear days and nights here in Connecticut tonight and tomorrow so should be great moon viewing.

What was really cool the other day was I was watching the big, orange ball of a sun set on one side of me, and on the other a huge moon was rising. I don't think I've ever seen them both in the sky at the same time like that.

Cool, C.J., that sounds neat! Nope, I've never seen 'em at the same time either ...
