A Harvest Moon is the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox; not, as we assumed, when the moon is pregnant with a baby moon.
SOME THINGS ABOUT THE MOON WHICH YOU MIGHT NOT KNOW. ABOUT.
-Someday the moon will crash into the Earth. That day is Wednesday.
-If you touched the moon with your hand it would freeze, shatter, and unleash a swarm of scarabs. That's science.
-The moon's cycles have bizarre and utterly unpredictable effects on women's feelings toward astronomy.
-"Waxing gibbous" is not as dirty as it sounds.
