There are 12 Full Moons

Around the world, people have given names to the full moons through the year.

In America, the native American people's names of Full Moons are used a lot, such as the Sturgeon Moon for August.

It's weird because it's all kinda opposite under a southern sky.

Harvest moon in Australia would be March!

But I'll go with it..

The full Moon names used by The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from a number of places, including Native American, Colonial American, and European sources.


The full Moon that happens nearest to the fall equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name “Harvest Moon.” Unlike other full Moons, this full Moon rises at nearly the same time—around sunset—for several evenings in a row, giving farmers several extra evenings of moonlight and allowing them to finish their harvests before the frosts of fall arrive.

While September’s full Moon is usually known as the Harvest Moon, if October’s full Moon happens to occur closer to the equinox than September’s, it takes on the name “Harvest Moon” instead. In this case, September’s full Moon is referred to as the Corn Moon.
