So what is A Harvest Moon??

Updated: Sep 15, 2019


So the date is Friday 13th, full moon in the sky and Paul decides it would be a good idea to pull up next to a reservoir for the night and have a go at photographing the Harvest Moon. But what exactly is it?

The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon nearest the September equinox, which occurs around September 22. Most years, the Harvest Moon is in the month of September, but around every three years, it is in October.

In 2019, the Harvest Moon is actually a micro-moon or mini-moon: the most distant and smallest full moon of the year.(source earthsky.org)
