For many of us fall with all its glorious warm colors is our favorite time of year. Harvest Moon is the term given to the full moon which appears closest to the fall equinox - the point after which daylight hours start to reduce for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. The moon appears shortly after sunset, allowing the sky to provide light for a longer period of time. The moon at this time also tends to be more colorful due to the tilt of earth and reflections in the atmosphere which sometimes gives this moon a “pumpkin-like” appearance. It's named after its connection to farmers. Before electricity, this moon was utilized and relied on by farmers so that they could work later in the evenings to harvest their crops. The arrival of the Harvest Moon means summer is officially coming to an end.
Fun Fact: If you are a wine lover, you might be surprised to know this moon is also known as the Wine Moon because it is responsible for signaling to farmers when grapes are plump enough to make your favorite Pinot Noir.
