The most recent supermoon, known as the Harvest Moon, appeared in September and marked the end of the season for lunar enthusiasts.

A supermoon occurs when the moon is at or near its closest point to Earth, making it appear larger and brighter in the sky.

The Harvest Moon is named after the start of the harvest season in the Northern Hemisphere.

This year has been particularly special for supermoon lovers, as the next one won’t occur until September 2024.

Photographers around the world captured stunning images of the Harvest Moon, showcasing its beauty as it illuminates the night sky.

The harvest moon is a term derived from the fact that it occurs close to the beginning of fall and helped farmers work into the evening to harvest their crops, CNN reports.

In addition to the harvest moon, several planets are currently visible in the night sky. The remaining full moons and supermoons for 2023 include the Hunter’s moon in October, the Beaver moon in November, and the Cold moon in December. There will also be an annular solar eclipse on October 14 and a partial lunar eclipse on October 28.

Lastly, there are several meteor showers expected to peak throughout the remainder of the year, including the Draconids, Orionids, Southern Taurids, Northern Taurids, Leonids, Geminids, and Ursids, CNN added.
