If you look to the east as the sun sets and twilight starts this evening, you should be able to see the rare harvest moon. The Harvest Moon occurs when the full moon is nearest to the autumnal equinox. The harvest moon started on Sunday night, but peaks tonight so be sure to catch it en route home.

If you cannot see the moon's orangey, amber glow this year, the next one will happen September 29, 2012. Until then, enjoy Ruth Etting's Shine On Harvest Moon (Ziegfeld Follies of 1931).
