Happy Full Corn Moon!

Did you catch the last Full Moon before the Fall Equinox?


The full corn moon reached its fullest phase in the early morning hours of September 6th this morning however it should still appear very full again tonight! It’s known as the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally occurs during the time of year when the corn is harvested.

This year is a bit different however because harvest moon is always the full moon closest to the fall equinox, which takes place on September 22. Because October’s full moon will arrive closer to this date in 2017, it will instead be this year's harvest moon. As NASA pointed out the full corn moon reached its fullest phase in the early-morning hours on Wednesday, but it should still appear very full again Wednesday night.

Neptune reached opposition at the same time as the full moon this month. At this point, the distant planet was directly opposite the sun, meaning more light was reflected off Neptune, making it brighter than normal.
Fall Equinox

The autumnal equinox marks the end of summer and the beginning of fall. It is the point when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator—shining directly on the equator, meaning day and night are almost of equal length.

This is all to do with the tilt of the planet with respect to its orbital plane. As it spins on its axis, the northern and southern hemisphere are either closer or farther away from the sun’s rays.

At two points each year, there is a geometrical alignment between the sun and Earth, meaning the sun appears right above the equator. At this point, there are roughly 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. The next equinox, the spring equinox, will take place on March 20.

The full moon that follows the fall equinox will be the harvest moon. It will appear on October 5. This moon is also known as the "full hunter’s moon," as it was once the time when people went hunting in preparation for winter.

Supermoon and Winter Solstice

The next supermoon, when a full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to Earth, so appears up to 14 percent bigger than normal, will appear on December 3. This will be followed by the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, on December 21.
