Harvest Moon 2018

Posted on Updated on

Well. I was intending to take pictures of the Moon and post them. Alas, that just isn’t happening. We have cloud cover so thick, I can’t even see a faint glow. Bummer.

Traditionally referred to as the Harvest Moon due to the fact that it is the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox, this Moon is also known as the Corn Moon and the Fruit Moon. This Moon was important to early farmers because they had more bright moon nights to gather crops. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans and wild rice, the primary Native American staples, are now ready for gathering.

100% full illumination occurred just a bit, ago, at 10:52pm EDT.

The three pix, below, are from the full moon on September 6, 2017.

      I was trying to get as clear a shot as I could from my front porch, thru the trees. It wan’t until was cropping & zooming in that they shape appeared.

      The moon is still a ball of bright blur. I need a real camera. *sigh*

      The eye shape appeared when I was editing.
