Autumnal Equinox

Tonight is the autumnal equinox and tomorrow is the first full day of autumn, also a full harvest moon. I was born in the fall and my name could have been Autumn. I was named after my grandmother Olive and my sister is named after her middle name. I've taken the flowers down from my desk this year and only have my fall leaves. I like to celebrate the seasons. For the first time since 1991, the full moon will shed light on the beginning of fall—the Northern Hemisphere's autumnal equinox, which in 2010 officially begins Wednesday at 11:13 pm ET.
September: Harvest Moon. The most familiar named moon, September's harvest moon refers to the time of year after the autumn equinox when crops are gathered. It also refers to the moon's particularly bright appearance and early rise, which lets farmers continue harvesting into the night. Other names include the corn moon and the barley moon.
