Harvest Moon 2017

The weekend of October 5 and 6 was the Harvest Moon in 2017. The lunar orb rising on Thursday night marks the closest full moon to the fall equinox.  In the Northern Hemisphere, the harvest moon is the closest full moon to the fall equinox, which usually happens on or around September 22. That means the harvest moon usually occurs in September. But this year, the September full moon appeared on the 6th, separating it from the fall equinox by 16 days. The October 5 full moon arrives only 13 days after the fall equinox, making it the closer pairing.

I also threw in a sunset pictures from Atlantic Beach on 5th of October.
