Edition Today Lifestyle
The full Moon on Friday the 13th of September from the point of view of science is just a coincidence
The superstition regarding Friday the 13th will give a little more horror this year, because in the night from 13 to 14 September, the Ground will illuminate the full Moon. Amazingly rare coincidence happens not so often – the last time the full moon on “Friday 13” was dropped in 2014 June 13. Before this full moon happens 13 October 2000. Next time such a coincidence will happen again August 13, 2049, so don’t miss a moment to capture a full moon tonight.

The full moon in September is called “harvest moon”, that is the full moon nearest the September 23 autumnal equinox. However, due to its location relative to the Earth, “supermoon” is not expected, which had previously been seen in February 2019. This time the full moon will appear 14% smaller as the Moon at this point will be at apogee – farthest point on orbit from Earth at a distance of 405 715 kilometers.
The full Moon on Friday the 13th of September, will seem to be 14% lower from your usual size
To fear the full moon tonight should not be – superstitions regarding Friday the 13th are just myth and folklore. A little bit of horror to this day at the time Hollywood caught up with his eponymous franchise of horror films made in the period 1987-1990. But from the point of view of astronomy full moon on the 13th of Friday is simply a rare coincidence, occurring even less frequently than a solar Eclipse.
