Corn Moon

A Full Corn Moon Rises Above a Large Metal Sculpture on the Campus of the University of Minnesota

Under a Full Moon ~ Tsukimi ~ Man in the Moon

The full moon in September is often referred to as the Corn Moon because among some Native American tribes it occurred at a time when corn was ready to be harvested. A full moon occurring in September before the Autumnal Equinox is often called the Corn Moon, while a full moon after the equinox is referred to as the Harvest Moon.

Regardless of the date it occurs, the September full moon may be call the Corn Moon, Harvest Moon, the Barley Moon or the Fruit Moon

Buddhists refer to the September full moon as Binara Poya while Hindus call it Bhadrapad Poornima.


A Japanese custom of moon viewing, 
Tsukimi occurs in mid-autumn on or near the night of September's full moon, considered the most beautiful of the year. Traditionally, the moon was treated as a divinity, and prayed to for a plentiful harvest of rice.

Man in the Moon

Look at what's rising: Luna, Selene, man in the Moon.

Much of the universe, as we know it, is strange and distant, full of lifeless orbs and wild cataclysms and dark voids. We know little about the quasars and nebulae and supernovae of outer space. Through our telescopes we peer at stars and planets and galaxies, but how well do we really know them? We can only see what we can see.

The moon is different. It is closer to us than any other heavenly object, both physically and imaginatively. It has been part of our stories and dreams since the dawn of time. It's the stuff of nursery rhymes.

Colors Of The Wind

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?
Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
from Disney's Pocahontas soundtrack as sung by Judy Kuhn
Music by Alan Menken; Lyrics by Steven Schwartz.
