The Harvest Moon obtains its name from the harvest season in the Northern Hemisphere. There is also an astronomical reason why this Full Moon relates to the harvest. This has to do with the autumnal equinox.

During this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, we see the closest consecutive moonrises of the year around Full Moon. The successive moonrises coming around the same time of day, it feels like there are several Full Moons in a row.

If you were a farmer needing to get your crop in, the extra moonlight meant that work and harvest into the evening. Hence, the Harvest Moon.
