Forget Superstitions, Friday The 13th Brings A Full Harvest Moon

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

The next time we'll have a moon approaching fullness on Friday the 13th (before achieving total illumination the next morning) will be in a little over 13 years, in May 2033. You'll want to look up at the sky to see the next Harvest Moon, which is also being dubbed a "Micro Harvest Moon." . The moon is known as a harvest moon because it appears full for much longer than other full moons, usually lasting longer into the night and appearing full for a few days after. 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.

According to the Farmer's Almanac, a full moon on Friday the 13th is pretty rare. We won's see another one until August 2049.

While most are avoiding walking under a ladder or dodging that black cat running in front of them, I'm super excited about seeing the full harvest moon that will be dangling in the sky tonight.

Despite the fact that in case everyone is being technical, it'll really be on Saturday 14th as it'll hit the peak at about 5.30am BST.

Delaney said that the Harvest Moon is expected to be extraordinary.

"Harvest Moon" got its name because a full moon during September is around the same time farmers harvest crops. It happens when the moon is situated on the opposite side of Earth from the sun, completely enlightening it.

The Harvest Moon itself isn't really that uncommon - it occurs yearly and is simply the title given to the total moon occurring at the moment of the yr.

The Harvest Moon does typically occur in September, taking the place of the Full Corn Moon.
