  • Rare full Harvest micromoon is coming Friday the 13th

It's the kind of timing that makes kindergarten teachers and 911 dispatchers cringe: This week's full moon will appear on Friday the 13th.

Here, in the Eastern Time Zone, this month's full moon will peak just a few minutes into Saturday the 14th, at 12:33 a.m.

According to NewsWeek, the last Harvest Moon that landed on a Friday the 13th was back in October 2000, almost 20 years ago.

The Harvest Moon gets its name for being the closest full moon to the autumnal equinox.

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. Yet, you can still spot the moon throughout the night.

The appearance of a Full Moon on the unlucky date of Friday the 13th only happens once every 20 years.

What makes the Harvest Moon unique is that rather than rising its normal average of 50 minutes later each day, the moon rises at almost the same time each night leading up to when it's full.

Last February, the moon was at its closest point to Earth and called a "Supermoon". "Thus, from night to night the Moon moves more horizontally than vertically and thus rises sooner from one night to the next".

The upcoming "Harvest Moon" has also been referred to as a "micromoon" as it will appear around 14 percent smaller in the sky. That's due to the location of the moon near the horizon.
