The Harvest Moon 2013

The annual celestial sight was dubbed the "Harvest Moon" because its light allowed farmers in the Northern Hemisphere to harvest their crops for several hours more into the night, Farmers' Almanac notes.

And while the moon was creeping upward, a pair of planets in the southwestern sky were crawling downward toward the SW horizon. Venus(bottom left) and Saturn(upper right) are visible about an hour after sunset.
