You're right, wasabi. When the moon is this large during this season it is called the "harvest" moon. It is called that because of the the long-standing practice of farmers using the extra-large moon to light the night brighter and longer to allow them to work late into the evening harvesting their fall crops.
Just a little of the trivia that's cluttering up my heat.
