The Harvest Moon of 2020 rises tonight! But why is it in October?

When the full moon shines tonight (Oct. 1), it will mark the Harvest Moon of 2020. If it seems a bit late to you, you're not alone. Each year, the full moon that occurs nearest to the autumnal equinox and is thus christened the Harvest Moon. Usually this title goes to the September full moon. There are other versions of this rule that classify the Harvest Moon as the full moon that comes either at or just after the equinox, which, more-often-than-not, would also put it in October. But in the years between 1970 and 2050, the Harvest Moon falls in October no less than 17 times, and 2020 just happens to be one of those years.

First Week of October Will Be Dry

October is already here; the month in Portland where we see the largest temperature swing. Today's average high is 70, by Halloween a typical day is only in the 50s! We don't see such a dramatic change (up or down) in any other month. We DO live in a climate dominated most of the time by the mild Pacific Ocean. West of the Cascades that keeps our winters warmer than at a similar latitude elsewhere. But summers are cooler than similar latitudes. We're sure not Denver with those wild daily swings in temps!

What’s Up – October 2020

October 1, 2020 – What’s Up for October? A harvest moon and a blue moon, Mars is up all night, and a journey beyond the galaxy…. This month brings not just one, but two full moons, at the beginning and end of the month. The full moon on October 1st is called the Harvest Moon. The Harvest Moon is the name for the full moon that occurs closest to the September equinox. (One of two days per year when day and night are of equal length.) Most years the Harvest Moon falls in September, but every few years it shifts over to October. The name traces back to both Native American and European traditions related, not surprisingly, to harvest time.
