(Super) Bad Moon Rising

Uh oh.

Anyone up (say, studying anatomy) later tonight should be treated to a neat celestial show. For the first time in 20 years, the autumnal equinox is occurring on the same night as a full moon, an event known as a Super Harvest Moon.

For stargazers of all stripes, I'm sure this will be a rare and exciting experience.

For emergency medical workers, I'm sure this will be a long and bizarre night indeed.
