Photographers who had been on standby on the morning of Wednesday, September 2, captured arresting pictures of a full and vibrant “Corn Moon” that shone over the horizon.

The Corn Moon, which reached peak fullness on Wednesday 1:22am EDT, was named so by Native Americans to point the starting of the corn harvest season. It was the final full moon of summer time and it shone full from Monday to Thursday.

September’s full moon is often known as the “Harvest Moon,” because it usually happens closest to the first day of fall (or the fall equinox), in keeping with the Maine Farmers Almanac, which first revealed Native American names for the full moons in the Thirties. But this 12 months, the autumnal equinox will fall on September 22, making the October 1 full moon the Harvest Moon. A uncommon blue moon is predicted to shine this Halloween, October 31.

For those that missed this uncommon lunar prevalence, we’ve compiled spectacular pictures of the Corn Moon posted by photographers from throughout the nation and the world.

Okay… so maintain on. Let me clarify. Professional DSLR cameras have an choice of creating what they name a a number of publicity picture or a composite picture. So what I did was utilizing one digicam I took an image of the moon with a 400mm lens with a 1.4 teleconveter. Then I eliminated that digicam modified the settings after which hooked up a 24-70mm lens and took a second image. The laborious half was remembering the place I photographed the moon in the body. When completed the digicam created a composite of the two frames. So NO PHOTOSHOP was used to create this picture. It was all carried out in digicam. First publicity of the moon was: 560mm lens, ISO: 200, Aperture: 5, Shutter: 1/500 of a second. The second publicity of the bridge was: 70mm lens, ISO: 200, Aperture: 13, Shutter: 5 seconds. So sure it is NOT an actual single {photograph} however a composite of two images blended into one. The Corn Moon might be seen above the jap span of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge photographed from Treasure Island in San Francisco, Calif., on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2020. This is the remaining full moon of the summer time. (Jose Carlos Fajardo/Bay Area News Group) #nikond5 #nikon @nikonusa #fullmoon #moon #sanfrancisco #bayarea #onassignment #cornmoon
