Put down the pumpkin spice latte and pick up the camera, it’s time for ye olde harvest moon.

To match autumn’s changing leaves and seasonal gourds, this year’s harvest moon will glow a dreamlike orange.

The low-hanging moon will rise on Monday night, September 24.

Fortunately, for stargazers and lunar-lovers, Monday’s forecast is clear both day and night, according to Environment Canada.

The name “harvest moon” likely originates from northern-hemisphere farmers, who used the extra light to harvest more crops.

There’s more good news for those who love a good celestial event as the next three full moons (in October, November, and December) will be a trio of Super-moons.
