We had a beautiful Harvest Moon last night over the Caribbean Sea. As the moon rose, the eastern sky glowed pink and lavender from the sunset. We could see the moon from inside our condo, but the view was even nicer out on the veranda.
The Harvest Moon is the full moon that falls nearest towards the autumnal equinox. According to Wikipedia
, the Harvest Moon is also known as the Wine Moon, the Singing Moon, the Blue Corn Moon, and the Elk Call Moon. I had a glass of wine in its honor without even knowing this fact.
The photo below is now my laptop backdrop. The boat came zipping by at the perfect moment, and its rosy color complimented the sky.
Happy Autumn Equinox!
