Fall arrived last weekend in Colorado, so the time to say goodbye to summer is here. But, it is also, time to say hello and goodbye to the last full supermoon of the year.
September's full moon is the harvest moon and it will pop up this coming Friday the 29th. This time around it will again be a full moon at perigee in the Denver area. Meaning the moon is closest to the Earth in its elliptical orbit and will appear up to 14% larger and 30% brighter.
This will be the fourth consecutive supermoons we have had running through the summer. It started with the full Buck moon back on July 3. Then, two supermoons in August, kicking off the month with the full sturgeon moon on Aug. 1. Then, the full blue moon on Aug. 30.
This year, October's full hunter's moon will be on the 28th. It will not be at perigee so it will not be a supermoon.
