According to the Farmers Almanac, residents of Pacific, Central, and Mountain Time will get a full moon view before midnight on Friday, September 13, but those who live in the eastern time zone will have to show up a little. Their full moon will occur shortly after midnight, at 12:33 p.m., pushing it to a much less ghostly date Saturday, September 14th.
The eastern shores last saw the 13th full moon on Friday, June 13, 2014, the Farmers Almanac reports. A nationwide Friday, the 13th full moon has not occurred since October 13, 2000, and will not happen again until August 13, 2049.
The full moon in September is also called the harvest moon, which means that it is full moon closest to September 23, the autumn equinox. But unlike thethat featured in so many great photos in February, this one will look 14 percent smaller than what some call it a microlun. That's because it's almost at its height, the Almanac reports. Apogee is the point in the orbit of the moon where it is at its greatest distance from Earth, at a distance of 252 100 miles.
