Some native American tribes call it the barley moon, "because it is the time to harvest and thresh the ripened barley", the Old Farmer's Almanac says.

This type of eclipse takes place when the Moon moves through the outer part of the Earth's shadow, also known as the penumbra, causing a slight darkening of the lunar surface.

Usually, September's full Harvest Moon is typically the full moon closest to the first day of spring, known as the vernal equinox which falls on 22 September.

NASA explains where other planets will appear in the sky around the time of the full corn moon.

How to see September's full Harvest 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". Depending on the year and when the phase of the moon falls, it can be both.

CNN meteorologist Judson Jones said it was his favorite time for the full moon to rise above the eastern horizon.

Royal Museums Greenwich writes: "After the harvest moon comes the hunter's moon, in the preferred month to hunt summer-fattened deer and fox unable to hide in bare fields".

Because the harvest moon and corn moon are different this year, the harvest moon will be the next full moon to appear on October 1.

According to Time and Date, the moon was at 99.7% fullness at the time of publishing.

"When the distance to the moon is low, it allows you to capture the view with the objects in the front, making the moon look bigger", Jones said. They come around every month and light up the sky at night.

When is the next full moon?

In 2017, the autumn equinox occurred on Sept. 22, closer to the October full moon (Oct. 5) than the September full moon (Sept. 6). In the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the astronomical start of autumn; and it marks the astronomical start of spring in the Southern Hemisphere. "It is sometimes called a "living fossil", as it belongs to a family of fish that has existed for more than 135 million years".
