‘Harvest moon’ rises Friday, and it competence be a supermoon — and there’s an eclipse

September 16, 2016 - Supermoon

The “harvest moon” will arise on Friday — a full moon closest to a autumnal equinox, that occurs Sept. 22 this year. In Europe, Africa and Asia a full moon will also be a small bit darker, interjection to a penumbral lunar obscure that starts around 1 p.m. Eastern time.

The moon strictly becomes full during 3:05 p.m. on Friday. In Washington, a object sets during 7:14 p.m., and a moon rises during 7:22 p.m.

If we need some-more than a full moon to get we outward with your eyes on a sky, this full moon is also a supermoon. Maybe. It’s kind of a controversy.

Astrologer Richard Nolle tangible a supermoon, and a tenure has unequivocally taken off. Sometimes it seems as if each moon is a supermoon. (If all is super, zero is super.) Nolle pronounced that a supermoon is a new or full moon that occurs when a moon is within 90 percent of a closest proceed to Earth in a given orbit.
