A rare 'Micro Harvest Moon' will appear this weekend

A rare Harvest Moon will appear in the night sky on Friday, September 13th.

The moon will officially turn full at about 12:33 a.m. eastern time on Saturday but it will be visible on Friday to those who live in the central, mountain, and pacific time zones, according to the Farmer's Almanac. 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 harvest moon falls right between two new moon supermoons - when the full moon appears to be larger than usual because it's somewhat closer to Earth. 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. "Thus, from night to night the Moon moves more horizontally than vertically and thus rises sooner from one night to the next".

While Friday the 13 is usually considered a day of bad lucky, you may be fortunate enough to view the Harvest Moon, especially if you try in the middle of the night.

Despite all those special qualities, the full moon this weekend won't be a particularly impressive site.

When the moon is at its closest point to Earth, it's called a 'Supermoon'.

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

Other names for the full moon of September, from Native American peoples, are the full corn moon and full barley moon, which are based on its proximity to harvest time for those two crops. That's due to the location of the moon near the horizon.
