Tonight: a Rare Harvest Micromoon on a Friday the 13th

True Strange News: Tonight, Friday September 13th, 2019, a rare harvest micromoon will rise. Not only is this a full moon on a Friday the 13th, but it is also a harvest moon, that is, a full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox. It is also a micromoon, which will appear about 14% smaller than a supermoon because the moon is now at its apogee, the farthest point from earth. A full moon won’t fall on a Friday the 13th again until August 2049.

I hope you get a chance to see the rare harvest micro-moon tonight.
