Harvest Moon - Sputnik International
This week's full corn moon is the closest to the Autumnal Equinox, 22 September. On that day, the lenght of the day equals that of the night, everywhere on Earth.

The Full Corn Moon lights up the night sky of Tehran, the capital of Iran this Wednesday, 2 September.

This very full moon is the ninth out of 13 this year and is called a Corn Moon, taking its name from corn harvest time of the Native Americans. This year, the full moon will take place in September, though it's not an annual occasion and sometimes it can occur in early October.
