Alix...........hold on to your hat...........Tonight's full Moon will be almost 12 percent bigger than some of the full Moons this year, according to NASA, setting up a fine viewing opportunity when it rises in the evening.

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.

The Harvest Moon does odd things to people.

I got out Hubbys telescope, gazed thru it diligently, at the moon. And couldn't see one person I knew. I thought Neil Armstrong had a holiday home up there.
