Did you see Thursday’s full “Harvest Moon?”

It’s traditionally a time for farmers to get their crops in by the light of the full Moon, which shines all night long.

However, watching it at moonrise—easily the best time to see it—is all about timing. You have to be in position, looking east as the full Moon rises.

So in many ways it was a time for photographers to reap what they have sown from learning about when, where and how to take spell-binding images of the “Harvest Moon” appearing on the horizon.

The main image shows Flatland BMX legend and X Games Gold Medalist Terry Adams photographed by Jeff Rose with the “Harvest Moon” as it rose above the Arkansas forest and Ozark Mountains.

Rose captured the full Moon at its biggest and brightest on Thursday, October 1, 2020 from Sunrise Point in Dardanelle, Arkansas.

“My vision was to have Terry Adams, a world-class athlete whose movements alone are incredible and striking, set against these dramatic views of my home state,” said Rose. “Two elements that seemingly shouldn’t exist together—Flatland BMX and the craggy cliffs of these Arkansas mountains—coinciding for a brief captured moment in harmony.”

It’s reminiscent of “Dunk the Sun” and “Spike the Sun” from years past, but did you know that the full Moon appearing to be large when it’s on the horizon is just an illusion?

There’s a lot going on in the night sky in 2020, from a conjunction of the “Harvest Moon” and Mars this weekend and several very bright planets to the Draconids meteor shower to a “Halloween Hunter’s Blue Moon.”  All are coming up soon.

Meanwhile, here are nine other sparkling photos of the “Harvest Moon” taken this week:

When is the next full Moon?

Next up comes the “Halloween Hunter’s Blue Moon” on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

Best seen at moonrise where you are, October’s full Moon is traditionally called the “Hunter’s Moon,” but since this one will also be the second full Moon in a calendar month it’s also a “Blue Moon.” They happen once every 2.5 years or so.

It will also be the first full Moon on Halloween for all timezones of the U.S. since 1944

Wishing you clear skies and wide eyes.
