The Harvest Moon is a beautiful celestial event that occurs every year, and last year, it was especially breathtaking over the Lighthouse at Navy Pier in Chicago. The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox, and last year it appeared on September 20th, 2022.
As the Harvest Moon rose over the eastern horizon, it cast an enchanting orange glow over the city of Chicago. The moon was at its fullest at 7:54 pm CDT, and many people in the city stopped to gaze in wonder as it rose higher in the sky.
One of the most stunning views of the Harvest Moon was from Navy Pier, where the moon appeared to rise directly over the Lighthouse. The Lighthouse is a historic landmark that has been guiding ships into Chicago's harbor since 1919, and it added an extra layer of beauty to the already stunning moonrise.
Historically, the Harvest Moon was important to farmers as it provided extra light to work by during the harvest season.
In 2023, the autumnal equinox will occur on September 23 at 3:50 a.m. UTC. The closest full moon to the autumnal equinox in 2023 will occur on September 25, which means that the Harvest Moon in 2023 will be on September 25. Make sure to book it on your calendar. I will see you at the tip of Navy Pier. Come with your camera and I will help you get a great picture. Message me to let me know you will be there.
It's important to note that the timing of the Harvest Moon may vary depending on your location in the world. The date and time of the full moon are determined by the Moon's position relative to the Earth, and this can vary depending on your location and time zone.
