Full Harvest Moon

Today the moon is full at 7:13 AM. The Native Americans called this moon the Full Harvest Moon or the corn moon. This moon would mark when the corn needed to be harvested, Neat fact, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this moon. A full moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night. But a few night around the harvest moon it seems like the moon rises 25-30 minutes later across the U.S., and 10-20 minutes later for Canada and Europe.
Now I have that song playing in my head…
Shine On Harvest Moon
By Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth (1903)
