This Friday's full Moon is the Harvest Moon, as photographed by Jerry Pickard in Lake Forest Park.
Space Weather says, "The Harvest Moon is supposed to be a uniformly bright orb. This year it wasn't. The Harvest Moon of Sept. 16, 2016, passed through the outskirts of Earth's shadow, dimming one side of the lunar disk, a 'penumbral lunar eclipse'."
