Our weather may not be feeling particularly fall-like right now with afternoon high temperatures consistently in the 70s this week, but despite that we’re seeing more and more of those bright and beautiful fall colors and we’re approaching the annual Harvest Moon this weekend. Of course just about every month features a full moon (they occur every 29.5 days) but this is probably the most famous of the monthly “named” moons. The second most famous being the “Hunter’s Moon” which comes next month. Th Harvest Moon will rise in the east Saturday evening at 6:24 and it officially becomes a full moon at 10:22. The weather for viewing this will be spectacular wth clear skies expected and evening temperatures in the 60s to low 70s, cooling quickly to the 50s by midnight. High temperatures, incidentally, will be in the upper 70s tomorrow and then mid 70s Sunday, so if yu’re making outdoor plans ahead of the evening celestial show, you’ve got an ideal day for just about anything tomorrow.
