September’s full moon this year is the harvest moon. The corn is coming down all around Sussex county. Also known as the corn moon to the native americans, it would happen during the time of the corn harvest. This year’s September full moon is a harvest moon because it is the closest full moon to the autumn equinox on September 22nd. Sometimes this occurs in October.
Also known as the barley moon because it was time to harvest the barely.
The Harvest moon is bright enough to leave enough light to complete the barely or corn harvest.
