(WFLA) – Look up at the skies this weekend – you will be able to see especially large and bright full moon.

It is called ‘harvest moon’ because farmers in the Nothern Hemisphere harvest their crops at this time. This is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox.

According to CNN, a lunar eclipse also happened Friday night but it was only visible in Europe, Asia and throughout the Pacific. The Earth was to cast only a light shadow on the moon, and it appeared orange or red, CNN reported.

Although we will not be able to see the eclipse, we still get to enjoy the beautiful ‘harvest moon.’ provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
