The Moon bow in Kentucky usually occurs 2 days before and 2 days after, including the Full Moon if the other conditions are met. For a moonbow to occur ,
several things must happen. Good weather, water temperature, sufficient rising mist, wind speed and direction, water clarity, a clear sky, water volume and some moon light. It may occur before 2 days on or after certain Full Moons or any strongly moonlit night. The moonbow happens monthly if the conditions are right.

Lots of weird and bizarre science in the United States of America!

Full Harvest Moon

Harvest and Hunter's Moon

The Harvest Moon , the full moon nearest the autumnal equinox, ushers in a period of several successive days when the Moon rises soon after sunset. This phenomenon gives farmers in temperate latitudes extra hours of light in which to harvest their crops before frost and winter. If the Harvest Moon falls in October, the September Full Moon is referred to as the Full Corn Moon. Last year's Harvest Moon was on September 9, 2014. This year's Harvest Moon will be September 28, 2015.

The next Full Moon after Harvest Moon is called the Hunter's Moon. It is accompanied by a similar but less marked phenomenon.

The best time to see the moonbow is just after the moon has cleared the ridge looming over the falls. It is usually visible about an hour after night fall beginning two nights before a full moon. Then, add about 30 minutes for each day, since the moon, during its phase, rises progressively later.
