Photographers who were on standby on the morning of Wednesday, September 2, captured arresting images of a full and bright “Corn Moon” that shone over the horizon.
The Corn Moon, which reached peak fullness on Wednesday 1:22am EDT, was named so by Native Americans to indicate the beginning of the corn harvest season. It was the last full moon of summer and it shone full from Monday to Thursday.
September’s full moon is usually called the “Harvest Moon,” as it typically occurs closest to the first day of fall (or the fall equinox), according to the Maine Farmers Almanac, which first published Native American names for the full moons in the 1930s. But this year, the autumnal equinox will fall on September 22, making the October 1 full moon the Harvest Moon. A rare blue moon is expected to shine this Halloween, October 31.
For those who missed this unusual lunar occurrence, we’ve compiled stunning images of the Corn Moon posted by photographers from across the country and the world. Click the links below to check out the spectacular photographs.
