NASA also refers to this full moon as the GRAIL Moon, the LADEE moon and the OSIRIS-REx Moon to mark three missions that launched on the day of the full moon, in 2011, 2013 and 2016, respectively. Because it's the last full moon of summer, the Algonquin tribes along the East Coast called it the Corn Moon, as it coincided with gathering crops of corn, squash, beans and other late-summer garden staples.
The corn moon got its names from Native Americans. "The full Moon that happens nearest to the autumnal equinox (September 22 or 23) always takes on the name "Harvest Moon" instead of a traditional name-a rule that often places the Harvest Moon in the month of September", explains the Old Farmer's Almanac.
In India, the Corn Moon will be visible on September 1 and 2 this year.

Citing the Maine Farmer's Almanac NASA notes that Algonquin tribes in the northeastern USA called the September full moon and last full moon of summer the corn moon.
This moon can get confusing because it can also be called the Harvest Moon, or the moon that occurs closet to the autumnal equinox.
"In rooting around for why this name, what I have come to imagine is that the Wine Moon is so-named because the sun is setting right now in the vicinity of the constellation Virgo, where we find the star Vindemiatrix". This moon was an indicator that it was time to harvest the corn.
Before the days of electric light, farmers depended on the bright moonlight to extend the workday beyond sunset. The absolute best time to view the Moon is a few days after the first quarter, when exactly half the Moon is illuminated. The next full moon will appear on 13 October.More news: Marvel's Avengers Black Panther DLC Hinted At By Crystal Dynamics
Five things you should know about the moon.
The moon turns full at exactly 10:22 p.m. today, September 1, and viewing should be fair to good in Kamloops and the Okanagan.
Since the Harvest Moon and Corn Moon are different this year, the Harvest Moon will be the next full moon set to appear on October 1. The Hunter's moon will also be the moon that occurs closest to the Vernal Equinox, which falls on 22 September.
