The chart is courtesy of John Jardine Goss. September 9th, watch for the bright, round full moon to rise in the eastern sky. It will appear as a small crescent moon, about the size of your thumbnail, with a white edge and a reddish-orange color.

September 10 and 11, look for it to set at the same time as the waning gibbous moon. You can see the moon’s shadow cast on the western horizon as it moves across the sky from west to east.

This is the best time to see it, because it will be the closest moon of the year to fall on that day, and you’ll be able to view it from a safe distance from your home or office. If you can’t get a clear view, you may want to use binoculars or a telescope to try to spot it.

What exactly is a harvest moon?

Harvest moon, the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox (about September 23). The full moon will rise above the horizon at the same time as the waning gibbous moon because the angle of the moon’s spin relative to the Earth’s horizon is at its minimum.

What color is the harvest moon?

Moon can be observed. Moon appears, the Sun goes down so the full Moon will be rising east. Moon is low in the sky, see if it has a wonderful red colour. If it doesn’t, it may be too far south to be visible. If you can’t see it, you may have to wait a few days for it to reappear.

What makes a harvest moon different?

September 9th is the full harvest moon. The harvest moon isn’t always full in the same month, but instead falls on the full moon closest to the Autumn equinox. The moon will be at its closest point to Earth on this date.

This is the first time in recorded history that the moon has not been fully full at the exact same time every year. In fact, the last time it was not full was on September 8th, 2012. It means that if you are planning to go out and enjoy the night sky, you will need to plan ahead.

If you don’t, then you may miss out on some of the best views of Orion and the constellations. It also means you won’t be able to see as many stars as you would like.

How often does a harvest moon occur?

Around every three years, the harvest moon is in october. Moon is replaced by the Harvest Moon in September. It takes the place of the Pumpkin Moon when it happens less frequently in October. Harvest moon is the time of year when you can expect to see a lot of pumpkins in your yard.

It’s also a good time to plant new trees and shrubs, as well as to get rid of old ones. You’ll also want to make sure that your garden is well watered, and that you have plenty of fresh air to breathe.

What is the rarest moon?

The eclipse will be visible from parts of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Samoa, Tonga and Vanuatu.
