Harvest Moon

The Harvest Moon is the name given to the first full moon nearest the autumnal equinox. This begins a period of days when the moon rises soon after sunset, giving farmers in temperate climates more time to harvest their crops in the evening before winter. The full moon immediately following the Harvest Moon is called the Hunter's Moon.


James M. Thomas, last updated October 11, 1999.
