Default moon

Full Harvest Moon - September This is the full Moon that occurs closest to the autumn equinox. In two years out of three, the Harvest Moon comes in September, but in some years it occurs in October. At the peak of harvest, farmers can work late into the night by the light of this Moon. Usually the full Moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the Moon seems to rise at nearly the same time each night: just 25 to 30 minutes later across the U.S., and only 10 to 20 minutes later for much of Canada and Europe. Corn, pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice the chief Indian staples are now ready for gathering.

they are here (or so i'm told by unreliable source but i know i'd get some schoolies by the tower if i went that's for certain. give the moon phaze a couple of days, ophelia may also have kept bigger fish at deep water as the pressure is still the same and humidity levels are high, she is on her way up to block and cape cod and marthas vin. moving even faster it;s probably better since it's 40+ mph hit won't last as long.the weather will be in the 80's till tuesday and then on is 75 thru the 1st of oct. should be a great governors tourney in isp. and will see how this next system in the antilles shapes as we may get another hurricane. all said. today with the high going out in the am and a pop up threat by noon, the wind switches to a wnw at noon so i'd venture to think the weakie shorts are still lingering at lemon creek and may get reports of fish caught there as conditions are so-so but i like this scenario and would take a crack at fishing for em if i was inclined to do so. call me

According to the popular definition, it is the second Full Moon to occur in a single calendar month.

The average interval between Full Moons is about 29.5 days, whilst the length of an average month is roughly 30.5 days. This makes it very unlikely that any given month will contain two Full Moons, though it does sometimes happen.

On average, there will be 41 months that have two Full Moons in every century, so you could say that once in a Blue Moon actually means once every two-and-a-half years.

Another definition that some people hold to uses the term to label the third Full Moon in a season which has four. Astronomers consider this to be the 'most accurate' definition.
