Shine on Harvest Moon

Tonight is the Harvest Moon, Jupiter, equinox.  September 2010 is the only time in your lifetime that you can see a full moon and Jupiter shining near each other all night on an equinox. says that the best nights for seeing the 2010 Harvest Moon are September 22 and September 23.  The crest of the full Harvest Moon will come on September 23 at 4:17 a.m. CDT. 

Shine on, shine on harvest moon
Up in the sky.
I ain't had no lovin'
Since January, February, June or July.
Snow time ain't no time to stay
Outdoors and spoon,
So shine on, shine on harvest moon,
For me and my gal.

Ooooh thanks for this. Last night at 11pm I was standing and looking at the moon wondering what the 'very bright planet' next to it was. They were both so brilliant. And of course symbolic; changes.
