Harvest Moon September 23, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Music & Dance, Nature.

Tonight’s the Harvest Moon . . . the perfect night for dancing in the Moonlight.

And in the light of Jupiter.

It’s the first full moon of Fall for those above the equator, and the first of Spring for those below.  So, kick off your shoes, grab a partner, and head outside to enjoy the Harvest Moon.

Our harvest moon won’t rise for a few hours yet. It looked gorgeous tonight with Jupiter shining by its side.

I saw it last night… I didn’t have the best location for serious observation, but the moon did look spookily beautiful through some tree branches. When I was out, Jupiter looked like it was hanging just over a nearby tower.

Ah, how I wished I had my binoculars.

We grabbed our binoculars before gazing skyward.

The moon’s brightness tended to obscure the stars allowing Jupiter to claim the stage.

For all you Astrologers: The full moon is in Aries. The first sign of the zodiac.

Thanks for the Neil Young memories. Harvest Moon was a great LP.

Excellent. Glad you enjoyed Harvest Moon.

My animals are all going crazy and behaving very badly so even if I hadn’t seen the moon with my own eyes I would know it is there! My dog, Darla, danced alright. She layed down in a dirt bowl, as there is no more live grass with this drought, and rolled around and around more times than I have ever seen her do. Oh yes in the dirt and she laughed the entire time. It would have been funnier if she were easier to bath and it wasn’t so late at night.

Sweet! Tigger seemed friskier too! The moon influences more than the night sky.

I’m up every morning at 5:00 am for a 30 minute walk. The moon has been brilliant!

Oh, a morning person!

I’ve seen far more sunsets than sunrises in my life. 8)
