An incredible harvest moon is set to rise over Vancouver tomorrow

Oct 5 2017, 12:21 am

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

Tomorrow evening when the sun sets, Vancouver 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 much lower-hanging moon on the horizon, which makes it easier for us to view (given that there are clear skies, of course).

And luckily for Vancouver, tomorrow’s weather forecast is calling for clear skies for tomorrow evening, giving you perfect 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.
