This Week the Harvest Moon Will Shine for You

Grab the Cameras and Telescopes


It's time to start dusting off and cleaning lenses.  Make a wish for clear skies, too.


If you're not a moon gazer, look for a festival, taking place, near your home.


Harvest Moon, Full Moon

In Okinawa, Japan, so many places celebrate the event, I have to decide where to go.

From my office, in Kin Town, I can walk to the Full Moon Matsuri.

There is also, I big Moon Viewing shindig at UNESCO Shurijo Castle, in Naha.

It's always a good idea to check the schedule for the full moonrise, in your area.

But, when they tell you it happens on Thursday, September 19, 2013, don't believe them.

Get out there and check the sky, a few nights before and after, like I do.

If it rains or clouds roll in, on the scheduled full moon,  you may have a better luck, seeing it.
