The Harvest Moon will rise on Friday, Sept.
The moon will stay low on the horizon, making Earth's natural satellite appear larger in the evening sky.
Additionally, on Friday evening, the sun, Earth and moon will all align in nearly a straight line, creating a shadow on the moon.
The Harvest Moon is followed by the Hunter's Moon and Beaver Moon.
