Day 94: Don’t Miss the “Harvest Moon Walk” Tomorrow!

Today is Day 94 of the Papa’s Walk Challenge.

Except for a strong breeze, all was quiet on my walk today.  When I got home, I had an email waiting from NASA Science News – a notice to watch out for the Harvest Moon starting tomorrow night (September 18th).  As explained in the newsletter:

The Harvest Moon is the full Moon that falls closest to the autumnal equinox, the beginning of northern autumn.  In 2013 the Moon is full on Sept. 19th (the night of Sept. 18-19 in North America)  while the equinox follows close behind on Sept. 22nd.  The coincidence sets the stage for a nice display of harvest moonlight.”

NASA  was kind enough to supply the following resources. Just click on the links to learn more…

I plan to take night walks  on September 18th  and  September 19th and soak up some of that harvest moonlight.
