Shine On Harvest Moon September 19 2013, 0 Comments

Tonight's Full Moon is my favorite full moon of the year. This year we enjoy the double pleasure of it occurring right near the Autumnal Equinox. While the sun sets due west, the moon rises in the East. 

The amazing design of a full moon experience is that it lights the evening sky all night long since it rises at sunset and sets around sunrise.  Generally, the moon rises about 50 minutes later each night after the full moon. As we head towards Winter in the Northern Hemisphere, the moon rises farther north on the eastern horizon.
