Photos: A Sweet 'Honey Moon' Filled The Skies Last Night
We got a treat in L.A. last night when our June full moon—dubbed as the "honey moon"—filled our skies.
It's called the honey moon because it's the full moon of the year that was expected to glow yellow. The honey moon occurs because the sun is at its highest point during this time and the moon at its lowest, and the light bounces off, gives it that haunting, canary color.
"It is a similar phenomenon as seen at sunset, when sunlight is scattered towards the red end of the spectrum, making the sun's disk appear orange-red to the naked-eye," astronomer Raminder Singh Samra of the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver, Canada told National Geographic.
It also just so happened to shine throughout the night right into Friday the 13th. Although we do see honey moons from time to time, it's a rare occurrence for one to land on this superstitious and unlucky date. The last one was 100 years ago and there won't be another honey moon on a Friday the 13th until June 13, 2098. So, there's a good chance we might miss that one.
