Rare Harvest Moon Tonight


For sky-watchers in the Northern Hemisphere, the October full moon is pulling off a celestial trick that will be a real treat.

On Thursday night, the sky will be aglow with this year’s harvest moon—the first time a full moon bearing this moniker has fallen in October since 2009. Technically, the moon reaches its full phase on October 5 at 2:40 p.m. ET, which means the harvest moon will be in effect when the lunar orb glides above the horizon at 7:21 p.m. ET.

So why do we call this spectacle a harvest moon, and why is it special?
