The full moon will actually not be visible in the Eastern time zone just after midnight on Saturday, but will appear after sunset on Friday, Sept. 13th for the Central, Mountain, and Pacific time zones.

Friday’s full moon has been nicknamed a “Harvest Moon” by the Farmers’ Almanac. It gets its name because it allows farmers more time to work under the moon’s light.
