On Friday the 13th, a harvest micromoon will marvel across the USA.
The full moon at the peak of autumn harvest season allows farmers to”work late at night with this Moon’s light,” according to the Farmer’s Almanac. This causes this week’s full moon a harvest moon.
In addition, it is a micromoon, which happens at which it’s at its greatest distance from Earth, called 33, whenever the complete moon is at the point within the moon’s orbit. Than if the moon is at its closest, which makes it a micromoon at its apogee, the full moon will appear 14% smaller to people on the planet.
Moon aficionados will remember the supermoon of last year. A supermoon happens when the complete moon is at the closest distance to Earth — its perigee.
If you are excited about the harvest micromoon, then East Coasters may have a review of it on Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14 th, at around 12:33 a.m. Individuals surviving in the Pacific, Central, Mountain and Alaskan time zones will see the complete moon before midnight.
Friday the 13th can be a spooky enough afternoon for some, since is the complete moon. But the phenomenon of the full moon on Friday the 13th is actually pretty rare. It previously happened on Oct. 1-3, 2000, and wont happen again before Aug. 1-3, 2049.
