As September came to a close it gave one last gift.....this amazing nightline as the moon rose!
I love the big harvest moon that we see this time every year.....and why is it referred to as the Harvest moon?
The shorter-than-usual time between moonrises around the full Harvest Moon means no long period of darkness between sunset and moonrise for days in succession. In the days before tractor lights, the lamp of the Harvest Moon helped farmers to gather their crops, despite the diminishing daylight hours. As the sun’s light faded in the west, the moon would soon rise in the east to illuminate the fields throughout the night. (earthsky.org)
Even amongst the clouds in the sky, the moon was so beautiful and bright! I hope it was clear enough for you to enjoy as well. Maybe even again tonight. :-)
