What’s a ‘Corn Moon’? What to know about summer’s final full moon

This Rare Blue Moon Falls On Halloween For The First Time In 2 Decades Celebrating the Full Wine Moon with the Star Lore Historian: this week on the Storyteller's Night Sk

As in the case of other full moons, the current one will shine bright for three days, starting with August 31 and lasting until the morning of September 3.

It is really that time of calendar year when the air receives a minor cooler, pumpkin decor pops up throughout shops, and the Corn Moon fills the sky. The corn moon was given this name because Native Americans would start the harvest of corn on this moon.

"European names for this full Moon are the Fruit Moon, as a number of fruits ripen as the end of summer approaches, and the Barley Moon, from the harvesting and threshing of the barley".

The next full Moon will peak after midnight on Wednesday morning, September 2, 2020, appearing "opposite" the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 1:22 a.m. EDT. This moon was an indicator that it was time to harvest the corn.

The Harvest Moon is the full moon that falls closest to the fall equinox, which happens to be September 22 this year.

Since the Harvest Moon and Corn Moon are different this year, the Harvest Moon will be the next full moon set to appear on October 1.

There will be a second full moon in October, too - named the Blue Hunter's Moon. This is something that I am just learning about but apparently a full moon with a special name is only given once every three years.

You can expect that to rock up on Halloween.

We'll sure be keeping an eye out for this one. Because it's the last full moon of summer, the Algonquin tribes along the East Coast called it the Corn Moon, as it coincided with gathering crops of corn, squash, beans and other late-summer garden staples.
