Maximum beauty: The full Harvest Moon 2021 in pictures
Take a look at our gallery of great images showing the 2021 Harvest full Moon.
As the Moon reached peak 'fullness' in its cycle, many places around the world have just witnessed the stunning full Harvest Moon, with many photographers capturing some amazing images.
The term 'Harvest Moon' is a traditional name, relating to the harvest time in the northern hemisphere, which then coincides with a full Moon at this time of year.
If you missed it, don't worry too much. There are still three full-moons before the end of the year, the next one being 'Hunter's Moon'. And, in the meantime, we have pulled together some of our favourite images of the event from around the world for you to enjoy.
