A rare 'Micro Harvest Moon' will appear this weekend

A rare harvest moon will show itself Friday and Saturday nights.

The moon should appear full from September 12 until September 15, although NASA says it won't be completely full until 9:30 pm.

The September "Harvest Moon" will happen just before midnight on the 14th for the Mountain, Central and Pacific time zones, according to the Farmer's Almanac.

The next harvest moon on a Friday the 13th won't come until August 2049. The reasoning behind the word "harvest" is because the bright light of the moon helps farmers to work later and allow them more time to bring in their harvests before the chill of fall sets in for the rest of the season. Not only will the Full Moon rise around the time of sunset, but it will also be a smaller-than-usual Micromoon.

Experts say this phenomenon is said to occur once every 20 years on average.

What makes the Harvest Moon unique is that rather than rising its normal average of 50 minutes later each day, the moon rises at almost the same time each night leading up to when it's full.

Lisa Bloom Worked to Discredit Rose McGowan for Weinstein: Book
Much of the discussion shifted to Paltrow, who had her own confrontation with Weinstein that involved then-boyfriend Brad Pitt. Her firm privately helped negotiate a settlement that silenced one of his accusers in 2004 - and took a 40 percent cut.

"The reason for this seasonal circumstance is that at this time of the year, the path of the Moon through the sky is as close to being along the horizon as it can get".

Technically, a full moon occurs at a specific moment.

Last February, the moon was at its closest point to Earth and called a "Supermoon".

You won't want to miss this Micro Harvest Moon. That's more than 30,000 farther "out" than the closest point in the Moon's orbit, the perigee.

When viewed from Los Angeles, the Full Moon will peak around 9.32pm PDT.
