Full moon Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th is here, and it’s extra spooky because we also get treated to a full moon; well, some of us do, anyway.

According to the Farmers Almanac: If you live in the Eastern Time Zone, the moment the Moon turns full will occur just after midnight—at 12:33 a.m. on Saturday, the 14th. But if you live elsewhere in the country—in the Central, Mountain, or Pacific time zones—the moment that the Moon turns full comes before midnight on Friday, the 13th!

Another fun fact: Anytime we get treated to a full moon before the autumnal equinox, we call it a harvest moon, meaning it’s the full moon nearest to Sept. 23, the autumnal equinox. 

Get out and take a look if you live in one of the time zones that will get treated to this special event because the next Freaky Friday Full Moon thingy will not happen again until August 13th, 2049!
