A captivating Full Moon, called the Harvest Moon, will shine bright across Vancouver’s skies this September in spectacular fashion.

According to almanac.com, the Harvest Moon is tied to an astronomical event: the autumnal equinox and not to a respective month.


“This September Harvest Moon has also been called the Full Corn Moon because it traditionally corresponds with the time of harvesting corn. It was also called the Barley Moon, as this is the time to harvest and thresh ripened barley” reads their website.

The September Full Moon will reach its fullest form on Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at 12:33 a.m. ET.

If you want the best view, you should go as far away from the city lights as you can get. Parks, remote and rural areas are typically better for catching a glimpse of this natural wonder.
