Usually, September's full moon is called the Full Harvest Moon, because it is the full moon that occurs in September closest to the Autumnal Equinox. But every third year, a full moon comes in October that is closer to the equinox causing September's full moon to be called the Full Corn Moon.
This moon marked the season when corn and other staple crops like pumpkins, squash, beans, and wild rice were supposed to be harvested.
Other full Moon names for this month include:
''Moon When the Plums Are Scarlet'' by the Lakota Sioux.
''Moon When the Deer Paw the Earth'' by the Omaha.
''Moon When the Calves Grow Hair'' by the Sioux. P9013175
