Harvest Moon

Did you see the Harvest Moon last night? If I understand correctly, last night was the first time in nearly twenty years that the Harvest Moon  -- the full moon closest to the September equinox -- has actually occurred on the day of the autumnal equinox.

Since it's a pretty rare event, Eric and I went hunting for a good place to check out the sunset. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy. We stood on this bridge (which was sort of scary, because when a truck drove over it the whole thing shook like crazy) with a few other nerds and waited for the moon to show itself. I took the photo above during the wait.

Every once in awhile, it would peek through the clouds for a second, and I'd snap away with the camera. I really struggled to get a photo because the chain link fence was obstructing my view. But look how golden the moon was!

It really was pretty cool, and it was fun trying to figure out where we could go (by sunset) in order to have the best view. We had a little Wednesday adventure!
