The so-called Harvest Moon is very relevant to farmers. This moon officially marks the beginning of boreal autumn, where the days begin to get shorter and the air will become more energetic. A Harvest Moon is a Full Moon that usually occurs around the autumn equinox, (September 23) but sometimes takes time to appear until October in the Western Hemisphere. A Harvest Moon rises about 25 minutes after the Sun sets in the northern United States. According to NASA, 25 minutes before a typical moon, bringing extra light in the afternoons. For farmers, those extra 25 minutes of sunlight extend the time so they can continue harvesting later. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, this year’s Harvest Moon will occur during the heyday, or the point in the Moon’s orbit when it is farthest from Earth. As a result, it will appear 14 percent smaller than a typical full moon.
