Harvest Moon - What does it mean?
My daughter, Kara, and I were driving home from downtown, after spending an hour shopping for my niece's birthday present.
Sorry Serena, we didn't find anything. And September 22, is the official end of summer. The Autumn Equinox is when the sun appears to cross the celestial equator.
But this is the sight we saw from the freeway of the Harvest Moon.
In Norse mythology, the Harvest Moon is said to be the most powerful of all moons.
The reddish colored orb hanging low in the sky is an amazing site. This blood-red moon is said to give Loki his power to grant a good harvest.
Next month, during October, we will have to look for the Hunter's Moon.
