SkyWatch Friday

Posted by Lorac Thursday, 23 September 2010

A harvest moon last night. Not since 1991 has a full moon occurred on the same night as the fall equinox, and it won't happen again until 2029.


Look for wonderful skies from all over the world at SkyWatch Friday!


  1. OH, how cool! I knew it was a full moon but I didn't realize it was so rare to occur on the equinox. How nice you took a photo of it.

  2. Fabulous photos. I can't believe I missed the full moon on the equinox. One of these days I'll really have to wake up. Thanks for posting your photos, and thanks for visiting my blog.

  4. I saw the moon last night and wondered if it's a full moon or new moon. It looks mystifying and I can't help but to look at it once in a while. You captured it nicely.
