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.”
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.
