Just beautiful! (I could see it later out our eastern window in the kitchen and it was still bright but had lost its yellowish color.)

Oh late last night, when I walked my dog, the moon was so very bright, and so clear you could almost reach out and touch it. It was not yellow though, more like a silver? But you could see the darker areas that I guess would be the valleys or something like that. Anyway, it was beautiful.....

From what I can determine, you have to get out there and view it by about 7:30 or 8:00ish (Central) to see the really beautiful, huge yellow full moon.
Didn't seem very "Fallish" however when I was out --muggy in Dallas yesterday. I think we have tonight and tomorrow night still for the harvest moon!

ok, I will check it out tonight. Maybe we can see it one more night. I know the type you are talking about, it is huge and has an orangy/yellow/gold glow to it. Beautiful.

Anyway, shine on, harvest moon or something like that....
I love full moons.
This year, the moon in September is the harvest moon and the one in October is the hunter or blood moon.
November is the mourning moon and December is the long nights moon.

Ahhhh, if only we could see the moon this evening here in Mid Missouri. We now have a light rain falling with some thunder and lightening with a breeze blowing the sweet smell through he open door and windows. We needed this here.
