COLUMBUS (WCMH) — It’s something that happens only once every couple of decades: a full moon on Friday the 13th

The superstitions that come with Friday the 13th, and a full moon will be combined this week, when both occurrences happen on the same day.  

The Farmers’ Almanac says the last time this happened was October 13, 2000. The next won’t happen again until August 13, 2049. The occurrence of a full moon on a Friday the 13th happens on average every 20 years, according to the Almanac.

This is also the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon closest to the autumnal equinox.
