Septembers Moon Is A Unique One This Year

For the first time in three years, the September full moon is at the beginning of the month, usually called the Harvest Moon. Instead, since of it’s early arrival, it is this year dubbed as the Corn Moon .September usually brings with it thoughts of fall and cooler temperatures, and for farmers, the upcoming harvest. That’s why the full moon in the month of September is typically called the Harvest Moon, but in 2020 (like most things), that isn’t the case.

The Harvest Moon name is given to the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox, which falls on September 22nd this year. That makes the October 1st the Harvest Moon.
