The moon has looked strange to me as well. My 11 yr old noticed it looked full 2 nights in a row.. she has a telescope she messes with and the
youngest said it was a big pink moon that was hers. Anyway, it HAS looked strange.
To add to what Phage said, it is called a harvest moon because as you may know, the days get shorter in the fall in the northern hemisphere. The full
moon allowed the farmers of years gone by to manually harvest the crops into the night since the full moon provides enough light for this.
I also noticed the moon this past weekend. I wasnt sure what night the actual full moon was on. I was thinking it was friday because thats when i
noticed it. I didnt really sit and look at it but i noticed it again saturday and sunday. So it seems alot of people did take exceptional notice of
the moon this past weekend. Enough so to create a thread or comment on it. That i find kinda odd in itself. However the actual phase of the moon is
very difficult to spot with the naked eye and be 100% sure its full. Whenever i think that i just go back to what we know about the phases of the
moon. Waxing and waning and all.
