Saturday, September 14th 2019, 11:52 am – The last time we saw a Friday the 13th Harvest Moon was in 1935.
One of the rarest full moons glowed in the sky last night and many ventured outdoors to capture the stunning moment.
In fact, Friday’s Harvest Moon was so rare that there hasn’t been one like it for 152 years! According to The Weather Network, it was probably a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see it, as a similar Harvest Moon is not expected to land on Friday 13th for another 152 years!
Fortunately, if you missed the stunning one-off moon last night, Canadians from across the country have taken to social media to share their own photos of the Harvest Moon, and some of them are almost as good as the real thing!

Fullmoon on Friday 13th, I tried to stack a few photos but failed. So I had to do a little bit of photoshop work on the edges of the moon. Still think it looks alright but am honest if I photoshop anything (except people) 😂😂 #yeg #fullmoon #HarvestMoon #EastEndTrails pic.twitter.com/xaAeQbpACp
