Look Out For a Harvest Moon Tomorrow
Watch the night skies of New Jersey Friday night for a Harvest Moon!
A Harvest Moon in September usually signifies that Fall is upon us, even though our temperatures (despite today's mild temps!) are usually in the low 80's at this time of year.
According to NJ.com, look out for a pretty colorful sunset tomorrow,
The Harvest Moon will rise on Friday, Sept. 16, before sunset with an orange, red hue. The moon will stay low on the horizon, making Earth's natural satellite appear larger in the evening sky. The full moon may be seen as early as 3:05 p.m. Friday, according to Space.com.
Additionally, on Friday evening, the sun, Earth and moon will all align in nearly a straight line, creating a shadow on the moon. The event is known as a penumbral lunar eclipse.
Very cool! Hopefully the clouds will hold off!
