Rare full moon will light up Friday the 13th for the first time in years

This week, the spooky date gets a spooky night sky to go with it.

Friday the 13th will be extra spooky this week. The date associated with bad luck, haunted houses and that 1980s summer-camp slasher film series will get a full moon for the first time in years.

According to the Farmers' Almanac, those living in the Pacific, Central and Mountain time zones will get to gaze on the full moon before midnight on Friday, Sept. 13, but those living in the Eastern time zone will have to fudge a little. Their full moon will happen  just after midnight, at 12:33 a.m., pushing it to the much-less-spooky date of Saturday, Sept. 14.

East coasters last saw a Friday the 13th full moon on June 13, 2014, the Farmers' Almanac reports. A nationwide Friday the 13th full moon hasn't happened since Oct. 13, 2000, and won't happen again until Aug. 13, 2049.
