Full Moon and Eqiunoxes

10-3-2009

There's something special happening next week! According to Answers.com, an event that takes place every fifteen years or so!  Drum roll.............. A Full Moon on the Equinox

You all know I love watercolor sketching full moons.  What a treat this will be!  Mark your calendars, be there or be square :)  Thursday, September 23rd.  Dance in the moonlight and celebrate the Autumnal Equinox and the Full Harvest Moon!

Yes, that's right.... The Harvest Moon.  The Farmer's Almanac says that the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox is the Harvest Moon.  In fact, two years out of three the Harvest Moon is in September.  Last year it was in October and pictured to the left is a snippet from the sketch I did overlooking the May River.

What location to choose for next week's sketch?  Hmmmmmmm....... Stay tuned!
