Check out this photo of the moon up over Western Avenue in Augusta..
The last couple of days you've probably noticed that the moon looks a little bigger, a little brighter, and a whole lot closer to Earth than it normally does, right? That's because it was the harvest moon. According to Britannica,
Harvest moon, the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox (about September 23). Near the time of the autumnal equinox, the angle of the moon's orbit relative to the Earth's horizon is at its minimum, causing the full moon to rise above the horizon much faster than usual.
Why is it called the 'harvest moon'? Well, it's actually self-explanatory.. the harvest moon provided farmers with extra light to work on harvesting their crops even after nightfall. And while modern technology allows farmers to work at night even without the bright glow of the moon, it's still a really cool peek into its history.
