Look for the harvest moon, September 19. This is the time of year the moon rises only about 30 minutes later than it did the night before, unlike the hour difference on other nights of the year. On this night, the moon is very close to the horizon in autumn. It’s called a harvest moon because it gave farmers more light to work by.
Observing a full moon is magnificent. However, as all good things come to an end, a cool silvery full moon wanes back into darkness. Lucky for us it’s just a “phase” so we only have to wait until the next month when we see it full once again. Just like
Earth the moon has a day side and a night side.
