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.

A full moon in September is also called a harvest moon, meaning it's the full moon nearest to Sept. 23, the autumnal equinox.
