ere's a Full Moon Due on Friday the 13th for Most of the U.S. The Next One Isn't for Another 30 Years
The next full moon is set to make an appearance on the most ominous date on the calendar this month.
A September full moon, also known as a “Harvest Moon,” will be visible to many Americans this Friday the 13th.
According to NASA, the moon will be full early Saturday morning, Sept. 14, at 12:33 a.m. EST, but for those who live in the Central, Mountain and Pacific time zones, the full moon will be visible shortly before midnight on Friday the 13th.
NASA says that the moon will appear full for about three days centered around this time — from Thursday night through Sunday morning.
A full moon on Friday the 13th is an extremely rare occurrence, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. It reports that this will be the first full moon visible across the U.S. on Friday the 13th since Oct. 13, 2000.
