Bad moon rising

The Harvest Moon on Oct. 5 peaked out through the clouds as it rose over Georgian Bay.

Normally, the September full moon is deemed to be the Harvest Moon, but not this year. The October moon fell closer to the Autumnal Equinox than did September’s moon, winning it the title for 2017.
