Rare full moon to appear on Friday the 13th across the US

Rare full Harvest micromoon is coming for Friday the 13th

The Friday the 13th won't be quite as rare in the Eastern time zone because the full moon technically happens just after midnight on the 14th. This lunar event is so rare that it hasn't happened for almost 20 years.

Jose Herrera said: "Next Friday is Friday the 13th and it's gonna be a Full Moon so if y'all see me in the woods dancing naked, mind your business".

If you miss the moon this weekend, you will also have to wait 30 years to spot the next Friday the 13th Harvest Moon, as it won't reappear again until August 2049.

According to NASA, it's called the Harvest Moon because it's the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox. Plus it's going to be a Full Moon and not only that, it's going to be a Full Harvest Moon. The reasoning behind the word "harvest" is because the bright light of the moon helps farmers to work later and allow them more time to bring in their harvests before the chill of fall sets in for the rest of the season.

Trump Challengers Angry Over States' Plans to Cancel Primaries
In January, the Republican National Committee voted to express its "undivided support" for Trump and his "effective presidency". However, although Sanford has been a frequent critic of Trump, he has said he would back the President instead of a Democrat.

That means Friday the 13th will be extra spooky!

When viewed from Los Angeles, the Full Moon will peak around 9.32pm PDT.

According to the Farmers' Almanac, "It has been calculated that to have a full moon occur on the 13th day of a particular month, and for that day to be a Friday, it is (on average) a once in 20-year occurrence". This is because the moon is also nearing its apogee-the point in its almost month-long elliptical orbit at which it s furthest away from Earth.
