"The sunset-moonrise concurrence also simply makes for a spectacular spectacle, which we are treated to for several days. Low-hanging moons at sunset are reddened by clouds and dust, giving them that surreal "giant floating pumpkin" effect that so perfectly ushers in the fall."

Oh I love that! We got a red moon last month too, there's something so magical when that happens. I didn't know that "the Harvest Moon rises in as little as 23 minutes later each day. This happens because during this time of year, the moon's orbit is more nearly parallel to the horizon and thus its relationship to the eastern horizon does not change much from day to day."

Nifty :)

Can we sacrifice Neil Young to the Moonenite gods?

It's not called a Harvest Moon anymore; thanks to a trademark issue with Natsume we are supposed to call the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox should be called the Story of Seasons.

What about Mars? Will it be as big as the moon?

Is this the moon that loses its virginity or drinks alcohol for the first time?

Wow! This is last time we will get this moon for 18 millionty years! I saw it shared on Facebook.

Is this the moon that will appear five times as large as normal because it will be orbiting closer to Earth than it has in nearly 50,000 years?

1. This year's Harvest Moon will be officially full at 2:40 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on October 5 - this is when it is directly opposite of the sun.

When the moon is directly opposite the sun ... is usually called an eclipse, no?

We've been watching the moon for the past several days...not because we knew about this event, but our son loves looking at the moon.  We noticed it was really bright and last night it was right in the middle of the sunset sky- really pretty.  Can't wait for the full moon now :)

That sounded vaguely sexy.

It's not remotely special.  Depending where you are on the planet, you may or may not get a visually pleasing view of the moon.  Assigning some random dates and names to it change nothing.

/No, I'm not really fun at parties... why do you ask?

The video in the article explaining why moons on the horizon loom bigger was interesting.

My son did too when he was little.  When it didn't rise until after he went to sleep I would tell him the next morning that it was because he most have done something really bad that day.  Now he's really messed up in the head in general but he enjoys full moons that much more.  It balances out.   Life is all about balance.

It is a shame that his talents are gone.

That being said, I hope that my own death will be that quick. Strong and vital, then checkout time.

No prolonged pain, no need for wearing Huggies and having a nurse wipe my ass, no slow erosion of memories.

Yep.

No, but if we all hope and pray real hard, there's an off-chance that someone might put a pencil drawing of it on the Internet.

As long as it's not the Red Moon we should be OK and the Hunters will allow the Sacred Prey to rest and recover.
