Sunrises at 6:50 a.m. and sunset is at 7:11 p.m.

Mississippi River gauge shows 19 feet above gauge zero and is forecast to rise to 19.4 tomorrow and 19.5 Friday before falling into the weekend.

According to the farmer’s almanac, the full moon right before Fall Equinox is called the harvest moon and was said to aid workers in the fields due to rising close to when the sun set and giving more light for a few days. This moon could be observed this week.

The next full moon after the fall equinox is called the hunter’s moon and is named it because people could see deer and other wildlife in fields they had harvested with the extra moonlight.
