The harvest moon can be seen worldwide, but on different days and times based on where it is viewed.
The harvesting moon (an example shown) has got its name because farmers are able to work late into the night because of the moonlight
The harvest moon is the first full moon that takes place close to the autumn equinox.
It took its name because farmers can use the moonlight to work late into the night.
On average it occurs once every 20 years.
According to the Farmers Almanac, the chance of a full moon at the same time on the 13th of a month and on a Friday happens on average once every 20 years.
Although the phenomenon only occurs every two decades, that is not the only reason why the Harvest Moon is rare this year.
This year the moon almost coincides with apogee: the point in the orbit of the planet when it is farthest from the Earth at 252,100 miles away.
The distance will make the moon 14 percent smaller and is the reason why some refer to it as a & # 39; Micro Moon & # 39 ;.
Exactly the opposite happened in February 2018 when a superoon adorned the sky.
The super moon happened when the moon was 30,000 miles closer to the Earth compared to a normal orbit.
The harvest moon has got its name because farmers can work until late at night because of the light of the moon.
