You might have noticed something unusual about last night’s full moon. Well, it’s because last night is known as the Harvest Moon, the nearest Full Moon to the autumnal equinox.

For a few nights during the Harvest Moon, the moon rises shortly after sunset and casts a bright moonlight early in the evening sky which has helped farmers to continue their harvest even after sunset, hence its name.
