Daily Postcard: Full Harvest Moon Casts Glow Over Trees

Daily Postcard: The September Full Harvest Moon casts a glow on the leaves of a tree very early Monday morning at a residence in White Rock. This year, September’s full Harvest Moon rose in the southeast just after sunset Monday, two days before the fall equinox. The full moon that happens nearest to the fall equinox (Sept. 22 or 23) always takes on the name ‘Harvest Moon’. Unlike other full moons, this full moon rises at nearly the same time—around sunset—for several evenings in a row, giving farmers several extra evenings of moonlight and allowing them to finish their harvests before the frosts of fall arrive.
