FULL HARVEST MOON – SEPTEMBER

FULL HARVEST MOON is the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumn Equinox.  (In some years the Autumn Equinox occurs in October so the Harvest Moon can be in October instead of September!)   So this FULL MOON is also called the FULL CORN MOON because it marks the time when Native Americans harvested the chief staples of their diet:  corn, pumpkins, squash, beans & wild rice.  At the peak of harvest farmer’s can work by the light of the full moon late into the night.
