When to See the Full Harvest Moon in Vermont! Where will you be?

Good morning VT Fall Foliage Fanatics! Every year I post the date for the full harvest moon. Where will you be in Vermont to see it rise over the mountainside? This year’s Harvest Moon will peak on Thursday, October 1. It is nothing short of magical to see it rise over the ranges. It is also one of my special harbingers of fall! :D

A Harvest Moon in October is unusual, as it typically rises in September. This is the first of two full moons this month, which only happens about every three years. The next is an ultra-rare blue moon, which peaks on Halloween. The Harvest Moon is typically associated with the month of September. It is going to be awesome to see the full moon on Halloween too!

Neil Young's Harvest Moon is the best song to play as the moon rises in Vermont. It is truly romantic! These lyrics have a special meaning to me!💖

Harvest Moon by Neil Young

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin'
We could dream this night away.

But there's a full moon risin'
Let's go dancin' in the light
We know where the music's playin'
Let's go out and feel the night.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart.

But now it's gettin' late
And the moon is climbin' high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin' in your eye.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

They said on WMUR last night that there hasn't been a full moon on Halloween since the 1930s. That was surprising.

Hi Minnie, that's an interesting fact - what's going to be even more eerie is the lack of trick or treaters this year (at least where I live). The last time Halloween was cancelled was when the October 2011 snow storm hit southern New England (10/28 and 10/29). It was pitch black at night for almost 2 weeks due to loss of power that resulted from the trees with full foliage to come down on the lines.

It will be nice at least to see the full moon that night, provided it is clear. :wink:
