Last Full Moon of Summer This Week

Last Full Moon of Summer This Week
Full moon in Dayton (Izzi Dill)

The final full moon of the summer will happen this week! September 2 at 1:22 a.m. the moon will become full in Dayton. The moon will rise around 8:45 p.m. and stay up in the sky through 8:15 a.m.

This full moon is known as the Full Corn Moon. This September full moon is actually pretty unique. Typically the full moon in September is known as the Harvest Moon because it is the full moon closest to the fall equinox (Sept. 22) but this year that isn’t the case. Every three years, the full moon in September happens early in the month and the first full moon in October ends up being closest to the equinox and therefore, called the Harvest Moon!
