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

Take note skywatchers, because this weekend a full "harvest" moon will appear in the night sky across the United States-and for some, it may even be visible on Friday 13.

The spooky occurrence is a spectacle that rarely happens. But, viewing of the Harvest Moon will be best between the early to late evening hours of Friday, and early morning hours of Saturday, experts said. The United States hasn't had a Friday the 13th full moon since October 13, 2000 - and the next won't occur until August 13, 2049.

The Harvest Moon this week is the ninth Full Moon of the year and one of the most chilling spectacles of astronomy.

So if you are in Toronto, you can expect to see the Harvest Moon rise at 7:46 PM on Friday, September 13, just 15 minutes after the sun sets at 7:31 PM.

A Friday the 13th full moon last occurred on June 13, 2014.

When is the Full Harvest Moon in September this year?

However, this year's Harvest Moon is unlike most in that it will coincide with Friday the 13th. The bright light of the moon allows farmers to work a little bit later into the night to bring in their crops before fall sets in.

"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".

It is technically just like any other full moon, but because it happens close to an autumn equinox, it has special characteristics.

The Harvest Moon will also peak during a so-called Micromoon when the lunar orb appears up to 14 percent smaller.
