September 29th is the Harvest Moon of 2023, the full moon that falls closest to the autumnal equinox. A few weeks have passed since the opening of Illuminarium’s immersive Space: A Journey to the Moon and Beyond, which is situated in the Distillery District. This cosmic event is taking place. One enormous full moon emerges shortly after sunset for several nights in a row. The Harvest Moon got its name because, long before electricity was invented, farmers would use the bright moonlight to their advantage when it came time to harvest in the autumn.
It has never been closer to seeing the moon than it is now, as the Harvest Moon rises above Toronto. Through a variety of interactive technologies, Torontonians may experience the moon for themselves at Illuminarium’s debut exhibition. They can even bounce on asteroids, and small space, and leave their mark in moondust. There will also be amazing photos and videos taken by the James Webb Space Telescope that visitors may view and interact with. Loved space songs like David Bowie’s “Space Oddity” and Frank Sinatra’s “Fly Me to the Moon” go perfectly with these amazing photos. You shouldn’t miss this unusual moon occurrence!
