It's Harvest Moon time
with the full moon occuring early on Sunday, October 4, 2009. The moons were named for us by Native Americans long ago. They depended on the full moon to light the way in their gathering of ripening crops. For some, the Harvest Moon is party time because work in the fields is done. Your next chance to see the Harvest Moon will be October 2017.
If you miss it tonight, check the setting moon Sunday morning
before sun up.
