KUNA – Astronomer Adel Al-Saadoun said that the harvest moon (or corn moon) is a phenomenon that occurs on such days, i.e. late August and early September of each year.Al-Saadoun added to Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) on Thursday that the moon usually shifts in the sky every day by 13 degrees, which explains that every day it shines about 50 minutes late, especially in our region.

He explained that when the harvest moon occurs, it is not much later in the east because of the approaching line of the eclipse circle that the sun, moon and planets follow with the celestial equator.

He mentioned that in Kuwait, for example, on normal days, its sunrise is delayed every day by about 50 minutes. On these days, its sunrise may be 30 minutes later than the previous day, and in northern Europe it is 8 minutes later.

While this time, since it is the time of harvesting corn, the presence of the moon, which is full, makes farmers in the past reap day and night benefiting from the dawn of moonlight at the same time as the sun sets due to the lack of lighting that works on electricity at the time and the reason for their urgency is to harvest corn before the rains and damage the crops .
