The full moon closest to the start of fall is known as the “Harvest Moon” and is often orange/reddish in color when near the horizon. This full moon was also known by early Native Americans as the Full Corn Moon because corn was harvested around this time of year.
Your best chance to see the Harvest Moon will be at either Moonrise or Moonset so that you’ll have the horizon, trees or buildings to compare it to. Moonrise on September 13, 2019 is 7:35pm. Moonrise on September 14, 2019 is 8:02pm.
Please note that for 2019 the Harvest Moon is a “micro moon” (pretty much the opposite of a “super moon”) since the moon is near the furthest point of its orbit and maybe appear about 14% smaller than a Supermoon.
