GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The full moon on Friday the 13th was clearly visible in West Michigan overnight.

The last time there was a full moon on Friday the 13th was August 13, 2011.

It will be a while before the next time a full moon will appear on what many people view as a superstitious day. Experts believe it won’t happen again until August 13, 2049.

The full moon in June is called the “honey moon” because of its color, and it may have also led to the term “honeymoon” as weddings are traditionally held in June.
