Harvest Moon
Photo by Jerry Pickard

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'."
