Even shuttered by clouds, the summer’s final Super Moon — the Harvest Moon, to boot — still lit the heavens. Grateful for the opportunity to see not just this one, but all of the Super Moons, over the summer.
By the way, do you know why it’s called the “Harvest Moon?” Its the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox (Sept. 22). Behind the name is this: the Harvest Moon’s bright light lit up the fields for farmers who worked late into the darkness to harvest crops.
You’ll have to wait another year to see another Super Moon. In 2015, lift your eyes to the skies on Sunday, Sept. 27. In 2016, it’ll be Monday, Nov. 14.
