This is the time of year when the air cools down a bit, pumpkin decorations come across the stores, and the corn moon fills the sky.
Korn Moon derives its name from Native Americans Farmer Alenak. This moon signaled that it was time to harvest corn.
This moon can be confusing because it can be called the Harvest Moon, or the moon that is the wardrobe of the autumn equinox. Depending on the year and when the lunar phase falls, it can be both.
When can you see it?
The Corn Moon usually appears in September, but every two or three years it falls in October. This year you will see the full beauty of this moon on September 2 at 1:22 AM ET. You can see from
CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said his favorite time to see the full moon is as it moves eastward.
“When the distance to the moon is low, it allows you to capture the view with the objects in the front, making the moon look bigger,” Jones said.
“Say you’re in the city, and you’re looking in the middle of some buildings or over the skyline, it will make it feel so big and give it more impact.”
Which is the next moon?
Because this year’s Harvest Moon and Maize Moon are different, the next full moon on October 1 will be the West Moon.
