Friday the 13th and Harvest Moons
Its Friday the 13th, a day normally associated with bad luck and superstitions. But such is not the case today as there will be a rare Friday the 13th "harvest" night.
A full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox is called a harvest moon. It is characterized by its orange color. It's called a harvest moon because sometimes farmers would need to work late into the moonlit night to get harvest in before winter.
This doesn't happen very often. The harvest moon will be the first full moon on Friday the 13th since October 2000 and the last full moon on Friday the 13th until August of 2049.
This year, the harvest moon should be visible tonight, if we are lucky, reaching peak fullness at 1:33 a.m. CDT on the 14th.
