King Harvest

Tomorrow I’m planting the last round of seeds and starters for the “Fall”—which, weather-wise, only really begins in late October here in Austin—and then going camping so that I can get an unobstructed view of the full super/harvest/blood moon, complete with eclipse. I’ll try to get pictures, although photos of the moon from a normal camera never turn out right.

Here’s a link to learn more:

The lunar eclipse will also feature the “biggest” full moon (in apparent size) of 2015, since the moon will also be at perigee on the very same day ─ its closest point to the Earth ─ 221,753 miles (356,877 km) away. [Visibility Maps for the Supermoon Lunar Eclipse (Gallery)]

The Sept. 27 event is therefore being called a “supermoon eclipse.” The last such eclipse happened in 1982, and the next won’t occur until 2033.

Here’s another good link for moon info.
