A rare full moon will be appearing across the United States on Friday he 13th

The United States hasn’t had a Friday the 13th full moon since Oct. 13, 2000 — and the next won’t occur until Aug. 13, 2049

Friday the 13th will be extra spooky this week as a rare full moon is set to appear across the United States.

Are you ready to officially sound off the spooky season? I know I am. Now, I have an excuse to as well. If I am to play the superstition card.
The “Harvest Moon,” which is the full moon nearest to the autumnal equinox will be visible on Sept. 13 and into the early hours on Sept. 14, according to the Farmers’ Almanac.

If you live in the Central, Mountain or Pacific time zones, the moment the moon turns full will be the evening of Friday the 13th. Those who live in the Eastern Time Zone will see the moon reach its full phase after midnight at 12:33 a.m. on Saturday.

The Harvest moon sets itself apart by rising 30 minutes later instead of the 50 around the fall equinox.
The moon begins to rise as the sun starts to set, making the moon appear orange-colored.

Contributing to the rarity of this event, this upcoming full moon nearly coincides with apogee, the point in the moon’s orbit which places it at its greatest distance from Earth. This means it will appear about 14 percent smaller, giving it the “Micro Moon” label.
So we will have a “Micro-Friday the 13th- Harvest- Full Moon”.
