Full moons happen every 29.5 days on planet Earth, and we’ll have one tonight, but only rarely do we get a full moon on a Friday the 13th.
Farmers with triskaidekaphobia are beside themselves.
Tonight is the Harvest Moon, so designated in times of yore before electricity because it allowed farmers to bring in their crops after sunset.
Tonight they may battle ancient superstitions and ghosts as well.
There hasn’t been a full moon on a Friday the 13th since August of 2000, and predictably we’ll not see another until October of 2049.
In the meantime, for stargazers, it’s something of a trifecta – a Harvest full moon on Friday the 13th.
