A Full Moon On Friday The 13th: 'Once In A Blue Moon'

You're not going to want to skip this year's celestial treat though: The next opportunity to observe a full moon on Friday the 13th will be August 13, 2049.

Some call the harvest moon the "corn moon", since September marks a time during which farmers in the Plains typically begin harvesting their corn.

According to NASA, the Moon will be full early Saturday morning, September 14, 2019. This is because the Harvest Moon will peak before midnight on Friday 13th in some parts of the planet. So officially, at 406,377 km from Earth, Friday sees a Harvest Micro Moon. But the exact day this moon will officially be full varies depending on which time zone you are in.

This is considered a split time zone moon and last happened on June 13, 2014.

A rare harvest moon will dazzle the night sky on Friday the 13th, NASA said.

The September full moon is also known as the harvest moon because it traditionally provided extra light for farmers to harvest by, The Old Farmer's Almanac said. That's because it's almost at apogee, the Almanac reports.

How can I watch the Harvest Moon? Fall wouldn't be fall without the Harvest Moon, and a rare version of this autumnal wonder will light up Florida skies this weekend. In fact, if you do, you won't be able to see much else for several minutes because a full moon emits a very bright glare when it's high in the night sky. "This last happened in 1832 and won't happen again for more than 500 years". Thus, a Friday, October 13 Full Moon - around 20 days after the Equinox - would be preceded by a September 13 or 14 Full Moon - around 10 days before the Equinox. A harvest moon rises about 25 minutes after the sun sets. But for most people, the difference will not be noticeable.

On the other side of the orbit, the moon is 251,904 miles away from Earth - this is apogee, and the moon looks smaller (hence the nickname "micromoon"). A full moon may also bring an increased risk of injuries. November's full moon is called the Hunter's Moon. A full micro moon doesn't next occur until October 1, 2020. Also known as the Frosty moon.
