Big, bright Harvest Moon appears on September 13

On the night of September 13, 2019, the Harvest Moon will be considered one of the most popular moons of the year. The harvest moon provides the most light at the time of year when it was traditionally needed most during the harvest, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

The Harvest moon is the full moon which starts on Sep 14, 2019, at 12:32 a.m.

Traditionally, the Harvest Moon allowed farmers to be able to work under bright moonlight while it’s cool in September to harvest their summer crops before electricity was around to power lights.

"Unlike other full Moon names, which are specific to their respective months, the Harvest Moon is not tied to September. Instead, it depends on an astronomical event: the autumnal equinox," the Old Farmer's Almanac states.

People have always said that on a night of Friday the 13th in September can bring bad luck, and now they're saying because of the Harvest Moon it could bring even more bad luck, which has left even more people scared.
