Get ready for another amazing full moon!
Tonight, two days before the fall equinox, a full Harvest Moon will rise over Victoria.
Each year, the full moons in September and October fight for the title of “Harvest Moon”, with the full Moon that occurs nearest to the equinox winning the title.
This moon rises at the same time, around sunset, for several evenings.
If October’s full Moon occurs closer to the equinox than September’s, the September full moon is then referred to as the Corn Moon.
Look for the Harvest Moon to rise in the southeast, reaching peak illumination just after sunset.
Thankfully, the forecast shows a break from rain, just in time to view the full moon. Tonight, the sky looks mostly clear with a few clouds.
