Keep your eyes "fixed on the sky" in the overnights !
September 8 there will be the brightest full moon of 2014 as we have the "most super" Harvest Moon! Weather permitting of course, be sure to check the eastern sky at sunset. What a photo opportunity!
The Harvest Moon is not always bigger, brighter, or more orange than other full moons. It is special because at this time of year in the Northern hemisphere the time between successive moonrises is shorter than usual. And this Harvest Moon is also a supermoon. 2014's Harvest moon is appearing a month after 2014's supermoon, which is when the moon is physically closer to the earth than other full moons. So for this moonrise, it will appear larger than you might expect.
Christ be with me, Christ within me
Christ behind me, Christ before me
Christ beside me, Christ to win me
Christ to comfort me and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger
Christ in hearts of all that love me
Christ in mouth of friend or stranger.
