Friday the 13th is right around the corner and a full moon on this date is an extremely rare occurrence.
The Farmers Almanac reports the moon this September the 13th will be the first visible full moon across the U.S. since October 13th, 2000.
The next full moon on this date isn’t expected to happen again for another 30 years-On August 13, 2049.
DOES THE MOON EMIT BLUE LIGHT?
The moon reflects the light of the sun and although it appears to be blue it not true blue light. The moon surface is mostly gray/white, so it does not reflect more of the blue wavelength than any other wavelength or frequency.
