It’s a full moon Friday night – which at this time of year is also known as a harvest moon.
Stan Shadick is an astronomy professor at the University of Saskatchewan.
He says the full moon at this time of the year is a blessing for farmers – some who could use extra light.
What’s good for farmers isn’t good for astronomers, though.
Shadick explains the light from the moon obscures other objects in the night sky.
This month’s full moon may also be a supermoon, depending on the definition, because there is some contention in astronomy circles about timing.
