Mid-autumn Harvest moon


This was the rising of the September full moon I took early Wednesday evening. According to earthsky.org the skylore says this is the Harvest Moon of 2013 since it is closest to the autumnal equinox this year on September 22.  For Chinese people this is also the mid-autumn moon, supposedly the brightest of all the full moons of the year. Happy mid-autumn moon festival everyone!
