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

Elijah Vega | 10 September, 2019, 21:21

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

"If you live in the Eastern Time Zone, the moment the Moon turns full will occur just after midnight-at 12.33am - on Saturday, the 14th".

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".

Skywatchers have a name for every full moon in a month, but the harvest moon is more than just a name. According to Newsweek, if you miss your chance at seeing a Friday the 13th full moon, you're going to have to wait another 30 years. It previously happened on October 13, 2000, and won't happen again until August 13, 2049. The equinox - the first day of fall - is Monday, September 23, this year.

Paxton added that Google's dominance on Internet advertising stretches from all aspects of the online advertising markets. Speaking to reporters in front of the US Supreme Court Monday, a group of 13 attorneys general struck a bipartisan tone.

The "harvest moon", which is the full moon nearest to the autumnal equinox, is slated to appear in the sky on September 23.

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. For example, between September 12 and 14, the rising of the Moon comes, on average, less than 27 minutes later each night, thus providing light for the farmer to continue gathering crops, even after the Sun has set. 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.

"Remember last February, when the Full Moon coincided with perigee, its closest point to Earth?"

Unless cloud cover blocks the view, the full moon is the easiest celestial event to observe.
