Harvest Moon

September Full Moon is called a Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the Full Moon nearest the September equinox, which occurs on September 23rd in 2019. We haven’t had clear evenings in Eastern North Carolina lately. In the beginning of the month, Hurricane Dorian make it present known. I did’t get chance to see the Full Moon in August either, and hopefully this weekend I will be able to see the Full Moon on Friday the 13th or Saturday the 14th. It sound like a sequel. What isn’t a sequel is one of Neil Young best song “Harvest Moon”.

It looks like it going to rain on Friday the 13th, the day for the Full Moon. So I went down to the Morehead City public docks to capture the Moonrise on Thursday night.
