An incredible harvest moon is set to rise over Montreal tomorrow

Oct 5 2017, 12:21 am

Get your cameras ready Montreal, there’s going to be a spectacular harvest moon rising over the city.

Tomorrow evening when the sun sets, Montreal skies will be lit up with an incredibly bright harvest moon, that will illuminate the sky and give everyone who’s watching a free outdoor show. The moon will begin to become visible mid-afternoon on October 5, and will continue to become more visible throughout the day and into the evening.

As a symbol of the changing seasons, the celestial phenomenon features a lower-hanging moon on the horizon, making it easier for us to view (given that there are clear skies, of course).

Tomorrow, Montreal is expected to experience cloudy skies later in the evening, but light winds will allow the clouds to pass giving you nice moon gazing weather.

If you happen to miss this evening’s spectacle, you’re in luck as the next full moons in October, November, and December will all be supermoons, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to catch a glimpse of one of these beauties.

For optimal viewing, find a park or another spot outside the city limits in order to have enough darkness and be prepared to be amazed.
