There was a Full Moon on September 9, 2014 - but not just any Full Moon - it was a Super Moon that is also known as a full "Harvest Moon".

The Harvest Moon gets its name from agriculture. In the days before electric lights, farmers depended on bright moonlight to extend the workday beyond sunset. It was the only way they could gather their ripening crops in time for market. The full Moon closest to the autumnal equinox became "the Harvest Moon," and it was always a welcome sight.

Malcolm "B" filmed it and I have added a little music from my collection. "The Moon and I"
