Corn Moon - September

Full moon, Toronto pano, originally uploaded by polarcubby.

A full moon that falls in the first week of September is often called the 'Corn' or 'Fruit' Moon, so as to keep the Harvest Moon from coming too early in the calendar.

Had the pleasure of seeing this Corn Full Moon rise out of the water as we sailed over to Toronto Island, just as the sun was setting behind buildings on the skyline.

The moon in this photo is taken of a November sky by polarcubby @ Flickr.
