The final full moon of the summer season takes place tonight when the Corn Moon rises above Kamloops and the Okanagan valley.

"When the full Moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox, known as the Harvest Moon, happens in October, September's full Moon becomes the Corn Moon", the Farmer's Almanac reported. The equinox occurs when the sun rises directly over the equator, bringing an nearly equal amount of daylight and darkness hours in the northern and southern hemispheres on that day.

"Like the harvest moon, the hunter's moon is also particularly bright and long in the sky, giving hunters the opportunity to stalk prey at night".

To understand some of the stories around the September full moon, we checked in with the Farmer's Almanac and the folks at NASA who keep an eye on sky events. This moon was an indicator that it was time to harvest the corn.

'Squeezing a second full moon into a calendar month doesn't change the physical properties of the moon itself, so the color remains the same'. Other names include the travel moon and the dying grass moon.

According to NASA, this full moon is also known at the Fruit Moon and Barley Moon in Europe, the Hungry Ghost Moon in China, the Binara Pura Pasalosvaka Poya Day in Sri Lanka and the Honey Full Moon for Buddhists in Bangladesh and Thailand.

"In the Pacific Northwest, the Haida called it the cedar bark moon, according to the "Tlingit Moon and Tide Teaching Resource" published by the University of Alaska in Fairbanks".
