Did anyone else see this?. (something else incredible happened)

The day before Obama landed, i thought "WOW, there is going to be a full moon the night he lands." and BOOM its a harvast moon. (2/3 of my cherry's remain on my cherry tree) The next night, while working, i had to ask everyone i saw if they could see the full Havast Moon that i saw. (1/3 my cherry's remain on my cherry tree) Tonight while rushing home, i saw a harvast moon again!, weird thing though, its not full anymore.. (there are no cherrys left on my cherry tree)

Hoolllllyyy Trinity.

Not sure what you mean. A Harvest Moon occurs near the autumn equinox. That's why it's called that. That's when the crops get harvested, September-October.

Were you, at all, intoxicated by any form of drug/alcohol (just a question, no offense intended)? This could affect your ability to see things the way they truly are. I believe you about the three harvest moons in a row...I think one time a while ago I witnessed the same thing and also thought it was weird. Also, the moon looks very close to full during the last day of the waxing gibbous and the first day of the waning gibbous. Sometimes it's extremely hard to tell when the exact day of the full moon (when you simply judge by eyesight).

Just wondering...........do you mean, perhaps, the moon looked like a full moon and also had the orange sort of tint to it as well?


That is also considered a harvest moon, too, but when it occurs in the fall nearest to the equinox, as Phage mentioned..

Anyway, no, the moon wasn't full for three nights where I live, however, it can seem that way to someone who has uncorrected astigmatism. Like me. lol. So I wear my glasses, no, not my sunglasses, at night, so I can, so I can see the celestial bodies much clearer.

thanks for posting...

I thought I saw a full moon 3 nights in a row too... The actual night of the full moon (26th), I gazed at it for longer than usual.

That night my brother got married so it was very significant to me.

Same here. Seriously. I noticed it was full on the 26th, and again on 27th. Last night I could see it through the trees and I thought it should have been higher in the sky than it was at that particular time (based on the night before) and I just stared at it, kind of puzzled by its 'behavior.'

So, unlike my usual "science doesn't have all the facts, though it's probably pretty close" self, I was gonna come in here and say "full moons do not work that way." Because full moons are a purely observational thing, they're named by us.

But then I thought that over and said to myself, "well, if they're purely observational, maybe there is a weird observation going on."

So while I suspect that you just misidentified the moon on the day before and the day after a full moon, I'm willing to consider other possibilities briefly. I'm betting you just misidentified, though.

The moon did appear to be full afew days before it was actually full, a couple people I know kept mentioning that it was a full moon. I had to explain on three seperate occasions that the it was not a full moon until saturday. It was exceptionally bright and beautiful this month, in my area at least, and not too cloudy, which it hasn't been in quite a while.
Full Flower moon by the way!

The full moon was on the 26th. The moon on the previous and following nights (25th and 27th) looks pretty full, but because of atmosphere, there could be a slight distortion to the eye.

The Moon Phase Calendar shows that the 25th was 99% full and the 27th was 98% full, so it look full to the eye.


And as anyone who is a Buffy fan knows, werewolves "change" and come out on those 2 nights as well as on the full moon... So ... Yeah.

Well the tint on the moon would have been the sun's light passing through our atmosphere before it reflected off the moon, I was nice, nothing really odd about it... The moon was lining up for an eclipse, Earth was going to get in the way of the light, so the tint was sort of an indication that the alignment was going to happen.

I believe they can actually analyse that 'tint' to give us an idea of how our atmosphere is doing, but that's way way too clever for me to understand.

If the cherrys have fallen, it was a harvest moon. Who are you going to believe: the calendar or the cherrys on the ground?

I don't even know what this means. It sounds a bit like the groundhog seeing his shadow lore.

The calender.

Sorry...don't know anything about groundhogs or groundhog lore. Sounds like something for a "talking with the animals thread."

What calendar are you going to believe: the 'Old Farmer's Almanac' that was declared subversive in 2003 or the new 'Old Farmer's Almanac' that is ok for you and me to read?

My point exactly. What is the story about cherries falling meaning it's a harvest moon? I can't find anything about it online. Care to share where that came from? It sounds like folklore to me. I mean, you say it as if it's a fact, but that doesn't make it true. Got a link?

If you don't like the Farmer's Almanac, there are PLENTY of moon phase calenders out there.
Here's one.

What's not to believe? It's easy to believe that a 98% and 99% full moon looks full to the naked eye, especially with atmospheric distortion. You can believe the cherries falling thing, but I'm going to stick with good, old-fashioned scientific data.

I'm currently at the center of the North American continent and it was red as blood when it came up in the SE last night. I haven't seen a blood-red moon (if I remember the year correctly) since July 1989 when I was in Mackinaw City, Michigan.
