It is fitting that September’s moon is called the Full Harvest Moon. This full moon rises soon after sunset. Imagine the days before electricity and you will realize how important that was. It provided much-needed light for the farmer to harvest his crops.
Harvest Moon is the name given to the full moon closest to the fall equinox. This usually happens in September but can even occur in October. What is an equinox anyway? It is when the sun sits directly above the equator and gives us an equal amount of daylight and darkness. It happens twice a year–once in spring, once in the fall. The word equinox comes from the Latin words for equal and night. During that time we have 12 hours each, equal amounts of day and night. The fall equinox is September 22 this year.

VALLEJO, Calif., — Sept. 14, 2021. The USDA Forest Service Pacific Southwest Region will end the regional closure order affecting National Forests in California at 11:59 pm on Wednesday, Sept. 15, two days prior to the original end date of Sept. 17. However, forest-wide closures will remain in place and be extended until midnight on September 22nd on the Los Padres, Angeles, San Bernardino, and Cleveland National Forests in Southern California due to local weather and fire factors, as well as a temporary strain on firefighting resources supporting large fires in other areas of the state.
In addition to the four National Forests that will remain closed in Southern California, some National Forest System lands throughout the state will be closed under local closure orders in areas of ongoing wildfires to ensure public safety. This includes the Eldorado National Forest in Northern California, which has a forest closure order until Sept. 30. Fire restrictions also remain in place across all National Forests in California to prevent new fire starts. Please refer to the local National Forest that you plan to visit to obtain specific information on closures and restrictions.
