Why is Tonight's fullmoon called the 'Harvest' Full Moon
Tonight is the Harvest Moon, the nearest Full Moon to the autumnal equinox. For a few nights around the Harvest Moon our the Earth's moon illuminates the night sky after dark, making it easier for farmers to continue harvesting their crops after sunset, hence its name.
The Harvest Moon doesn’t look any different from any other Full Moon. It rises and sets in a pale orange color, just like any other Full Moon (because we see its light through the thickest part of Earth’s atmosphere). It’s otherwise a bright yellow-white orb when it’s high in the sky.
