Harvest Moon … Ah, when you hear the name, it seems to have something to do with agriculture.
But the incident is true.
Prior to the invention of electricity, farmers in the Northern Hemisphere used the full moon to determine if agricultural activity would continue after sunset. September Moon is named Harvest Moon because of its agricultural connection.
It is a full moon formed by the autumnal equinox. autumnal equinox refers to the two days of the year when the sun rises exactly above the equator and has the same length of day and night. Most likely the Harvest Moon will occur before this process. Hence it is also known as September Moon.
The Moon appeared to be 99.9 percent bright in the Northern Hemisphere. The full moon is formed when the moon comes from the sun opposite the earth.
The full moon is also known in many parts of the world as the Barley Moon, the Cone Moon, and the Fruit Moon. The Harvest Moon in the Southern Hemisphere occurs in March or early April.
