What does the Harvest Moon mean? It is when the full moon that is seen nearest to the time of the autumnal equinox.

Next question would be what does the word "equinox" mean?

Twice each year, it is the time or date at which the sun crosses the celestial Equator when day and night are of equal length. The timeframe is sometimes in September 22nd and March 20th).

This shot of the Harvest moon was taken Toronto on a very clear night sky.  I was lucky to capture the full moon in its full glory.
