Nope, not the 1941 musical film directed by Walter Lang.

Two sisters lose all of their inheritance to taxes and head to Miami to find rich husbands. True.

This one is rich, full, and features a small eclipse.

Unfortunately, North America is not in the viewing zone for the eclipse, but if you’re roaming around Bali, anywhere else in Asia, Eastern Africa or Australia, LOOK UP around 2:54PM EDT, or 1854 GMT.

September 16th marks the night of the harvest moon. This moon falls around the time farmers in the Northern Hemisphere are harvesting their crops. With a little help from the moon’s rays, farmers are able to work late into the night. Hence, harvest moon. This is always one of the more beautiful full moons of the year, so they say.

A full moon is a time of positive opportunity if you use it correctly. Here in the city of Miami, we find full moons soothingly captivating so we’ve put together a list of some stellar ways to celebrate.

Full Moon Goddess Circle

Females on full moons ain’t nothin’ to f*ck with and we bet your inner goddess is begging for some TLC.

Come dressed in your best white or pink fit and bring your instrument if you’re musically inclined. Oh, and there’s a potluck afterwards.
