Do you love the full Moon? Then you should know on Tuesday, 1st September 2020, 2nd September 2020, and Wednesday, it offers you three chances to watch the full ‘corn moon‘ this month at its best. Why only three options are given, and are it the ‘harvest moon.’ You can look at the full Moon any day of this week.
It will look very bright and big, but the satellite can look at its best at the time of moonrise and even at the time of moonset when the Moon is at the ‘full phase.’ On Tuesday, the full Moon in September 2020 will occur at 05:22 UTC on 2nd September 2020.
This is only after midnight on Tuesday in the early hours for eastern North America. You can see it on Monday, which is on the west coast. When the satellite is a hundred percent illuminated, as seen from the Earth, the full Moon’s time is not considered the best time to visit.
Why Is It Also Called ‘Corn Moon’?
In September, the full Moon is traditionally known as the ‘Harvest moon,’ but technically, it refers to the full Moon closest to the equinox when day and night are the same length. This year it will take place on 222nd September 2020.
So, the full Moon, which comes on O1st October 2020, is the ‘Harvest moon’ even though typically, the full Moon in October is also known as ‘Hunter’s moon.’ The Moon’s names are not as imperative as farmers in Moonlight do not do farmers’ harvesting. The full Moon of September is known as ‘Barley Moon’ and ‘Fruit Moon.’
The three best chances to watch the Corn Moon
The satellite will rise above the eastern horizon around each full Moon, close to the time when the sun sets and shines all night. Then it will sink in the west when the sun rises in the east in the morning. It is mainly about seeing the moonset or moonrise in the twilight; as the Moon rises each night, there will be limited opportunities for you to have a good chance to view the full Corn moon this month.
