Your pictures of the Harvest moon

Cortland. Andrew, Katelyn, & Kirsten, all 6. ( triplets)

Wednesday night's full moon is known as the harvest moon because it is the closest full moon to the fall equinox, which occurs Sunday and will mark the official start of autumn. The equinox happens twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, when the Earth isn't tilted toward the sun or away from it. On those days, the length of day and the length of night are almost exactly the same across the planet.

You can send your pictures of the Harvest moon to, or upload them on the CNYCentral Facebook page!
