I was interested to read on EarthSky about this years Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the nearest full moon to the autumnal equinox and often brings about early evening moon-rises and so is much beloved of photographers. It sometimes has interesting effects and can look bigger than normal or appear more colourful.

This year’s harvest moon will occur on the 8th or 9th September depending on your location. So check for your location and get your cameras out and go chase that harvest Moon.
