Just a simple shot of the Full Harvest Moon. I was in the West End of the city, pointing East. The bright light posts are at the ball fields located a few miles away in the South End of the City.

This was my last shot of the night, before packing up and coming home. I should add it was fairly breezy by this time, too. Once the moon starts getting high in the sky, I don't find it that interesting anymore, so it was a good time to head home.

Note: This full moon was the first of two full moons we will see this month (October 2020).


From <a href="http://www.farmersalmanac.com/full-moon-names/" rel="noreferrer nofollow">The Farmers' Almanac</a>:
<i><b>• Full Corn Moon or Full Harvest Moon</b>: This full moon’s name is attributed to Native Americans because it marked when corn was supposed to be harvested. Most often, the September full moon is actually the Harvest Moon, which is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.</i>
