Look up into the night sky this weekend and the moon might seem a bit brighter and a bit larger than normal.
That’s because a rare type of harvest moon is set to woo skygazers for the last time until 2024. Much of the world (but unfortunately none of us here in the United States) will see a partial lunar eclipse during this year’s harvest moon.
The harvest moon gets its name because it is the full moon that takes place closest to the September 22 autumnal equinox. It rises at almost the exact same time for a few day in a row, giving more light than normal.
Barring any cloud-cover, the majestic sight should be visible to many in the Detroit area.
