Harvest Moon 2010, Did You Catch The Rare Phenomenon
A beautiful, natural phenomenon is set to occur tonight within the northern hemisphere. This interesting event is called a harvest moon. A harvest moon occurs when a full moon happens on the last day of summer.
When this happens, the moon appears to sit lower in the sky than usual and appears to have more space and dimension than a typical full moon. The last harvest moon was predicted to happen in 1991, but forecasters were more than ten hours off with their prediction.
This event is called harvest moon as farmers used to utilize the use of the illumination during their harvest.
