See the Harvest Moon Wednesday, September 26, 2007

Filed under
Sci/Tech

A Harvest Moon is a full Moon that appears closest to the autumnal equinox, which occurs in 2007 on September 23 in the northern hemisphere. The name “Harvest Moon” is named so because farmers are able to work later at night “harvesting” their crops due to the reflected light coming off of the full Moon.

The specific time in which the Moon is opposite the Sun, that of the Harvest Moon, for people in the northern hemisphere, occurs at 3:45 p.m. EDT on the eastern coast of the United States, 12:45 p.m. PDT on the western coast, which is also 1945 Greenwich Time (GMT), on September 26, 2007.
