Harvest Moon shines over Wellington Bay

HARVESTMOON

The 2013 Harvest Moon for the Northern Hemisphere came a few days before the equinox this year, on  September 19, as seen in this photograph contributed by Sharon Harrison.
The shorter than usual time between moon rises around the Harvest Moon mean no long period of darkness between sunset and moon rise for several days in succession. In the days before tractor lights, the lamp of the Harvest Moon helped farmers to gather their crops, despite the diminishing daylight hours. As the sun’s light faded in the west, the moon in the east would rise to illuminate the fields throughout the night.
Autumnal Equinox is Sunday, Sept. 22.
