Here are some facts about the harvest moon from Earth Sky
"In traditional skylore, the Harvest Moon is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox, and depending on the year, the Harvest Moon can come anywhere from two weeks before to two weeks after the autumnal equinox. For us in the Northern Hemisphere, the 2013autumnal equinox comes on September 22, so the September 19 full moon counts as the Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon.
If you live in North America, the moon turned precisely full before sunrise September 19, but from eastern Asia, the moon turned precisely full after sunset September 19. See worldwide map below. Although the exact instant of the full moon has passed, the Harvest Moon is known for bringing a procession of moonlit nights!"
