The Harvest Moon in Its Splendor

The summer season is ending with a Harvest Moon. That can be viewed by looking at the sky or via the Internet. The full moon will appear to be larger than other moons, because it will be closer to the Earth. The Harvest Moon is a super moon. There were other super moons earlier this year.
