FULL HARVEST MOON

Get ready and mark your calendar for October 4, 2009 at 2:10 a.m EDT. That is when we will experience our Full Harvest Moon. The Full Harvest Moon is associated with the time between sunset and moonrise when there is not a usual period of darkness. In years past this additional period of light allowed farmers to harvest crops. Crops such as pumpkins and squash are but a few of our fall crops. Explore the folklore of naming all twelve of our full moons -- mostly by native Americans. Click here to read what Joe Rao, sky watching columnist has to tell us about these folklore moon names.

  1. Hi, I came accross your blog while doing a search for wildlife, and would just like to say I really enjoyed reading it. Were quite new to blogging so it nice to see how other people are presenting theirs. I hadnt realised there was a harvest moon due, hopefully if we get a clear night in the uk we will get too see it.
