Harvest and Harvest Moon




Harvest and Harvest Moon




Why is it Called the Harvest Moon?

For several evenings, the moonrise comes soon after sunset. This results in an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening, which was a traditional aide to farmers and crews harvesting their summer-grown crops. Hence, it’s called the “Harvest” Moon!
In 2017, the Harvest Moon will rise on October 5 at 2:40 P.M. EDT
