WHICH MOON IS THE FULL HARVEST MOON?
Which month gets to claim the title FULL HARVEST MOON? It could be September or it could be October. Answer. It is the month whose full moon is closest to the date of Autumn Equinox.
This year, September gets the Full Harvest Moon with the Autumnal Equinox arriving on September 22 and with the full moon reaching fullness on September 23, 2010.
The Full Harvest Moon got its name from the Algonquin Tribe and has been used in America since colonial times.
