* September 13 - Partial Solar Eclipse. A
partial solar eclipse occurs when the Moon cov-
ers only a part of the Sun. A partial solar eclipse
can only be safely observed with a special solar
filter or by looking at the Sun¡¯s reflection. The
partial eclipse will only be visible in southern
Africa, Madagascar, and Antarctica.
* September 23 - September Equinox. The
Sun will shine directly on the equator and there
will be nearly equal amounts of day and night
throughout the world. This is also the first
day of fall (autumnal equinox) in the Northern
Hemisphere and the first day of spring (vernal
equinox) in the Southern Hemisphere.
* September 28 - Full Moon, Supermoon.
This full moon was known by early Native Amer-
ican tribes as the Full Corn Moon because the
corn is harvested around this time of year and
is also known as the Harvest Moon. The Harvest
Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the
September equinox each year. This is also the
second of three supermoons for 2015 when the
Moon is at its closest approach to the Earth and
may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.
This will be the closest full moon of the year.
* September 28 - Total Lunar Eclipse. A total
lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes
completely through the Earth¡¯s dark shadow, or
umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will
gradually get darker and then take on a rusty
or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible
throughout most of North and South America,
Europe, Africa, and western Asia.

¡°We prefer that this take place at a time that
does not affect hunters, but that is not our
decision,¡± said Northwest Regional Manager
Ron Velarde of Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
¡°All we can do is alert hunters that they need
