Harvest Moon 2017 When and how to see October’s full moon
Besides virtually coinciding with the equinox, the moon rises about 15 to 20 minutes earlier than usual for several days before and after the Harvest moon.
In the past, the Harvest Moon symbolised when farmers would need to start gathering in the food to prepare for the lean winter months. But, depending on the timing of the equinox and the regular lunar cycle, the first full moon closest to the equinox can sometimes be in October, as happened this year.
This particular moon is named for its importance to farmers who may have relied on the bright moon to bring in the last of the crops. The next time that we'll see a Harvest Moon in October is 2020, National Geographic notes.
Thursday's evening sky will feature a "harvest" moon, the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox.
