Eye on the Night Sky
The Moon rises about an hour before sunset this evening, and reaches its moment of being exactly Full as it sets very close to sunrise tomorrow morning. This is the first of three days in which the Moon appears full, and remains in the sky all night long. This timing earned it the name, the “Harvest Moon”, offering light for harvesting right through the night.
