There's A Full Moon Tonight For Friday The 13th

  • There's A Full Moon Tonight For Friday The 13th

In the Central, Mountain or Pacific time zones, the moon turns full before midnight on Friday. They rise right at or right after sunset, and illuminate the sky during the early evening.

Its name comes from the extra light it provides at night, meaning extended harvesting time for farmers. This was also the case in January 2006, when the moon rose the night of the 13th, but became full at 4:48 am on the following day.

Typically, the full moon rises an average of 50 minutes later each night, but for the few nights around the Harvest Moon, the moon seems to rise at almost the same time, just 25 to 30 minutes later across the northern part of the US, according to NASA. It's not tied to a specific month but instead is the first full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is often in October, not September.

Tonight's moon is also a "micromoon" which is, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, exactly the opposite of a "supermoon". This iteration will appear 14 percent smaller than February's spectacularly large supermoon, according to Farmers' Almanac, because it will have almost reached apogee, meaning the moon's farthest point of orbit - 252,100 miles - from Earth. And an actual Friday the 13th harvest moon won't reappear again until 2171! Chances are you'll typically hear it known as the Full Corn Moon for a similar objective. What could possibly go wrong? The origin of this is traced to the 13 Apostils and the last super being on Friday. The next time we even see a full moon on Friday the 13th will be in 2049. The last one was on October 13th, 2000, almost 20 years ago, and we won't see another for about 30 years, on August 13th, 2049.
