There's a full moon rising soon, and it's ringing in the fall season. This year's Harvest Moon will peak at 12:32 a.m. EDT on Sept. 14. 

The Harvest Moon is the full moon that occurs closest to the fall equinox, which falls on Sept. 23 this year. 

Like other nicknamed moons, this full moon won't look any different. According to the Old Farmers' Almanac, it's said that the Harvest Moon was called so because it rises soon after sunset, which gave farmers extra light for nighttime harvesting summer crops. 

For an extra dose of fall spookiness, this year's Harvest Moon occurs on Friday the 13th for the first time in 13 years. The next Friday the 13th full moon won't happen until May 2033. 

On the night of Sept. 13, which is Friday the 13th, look up to get a glimpse of the Harvest Moon. Binoculars are not needed. Howling at the moon is optional, but recommended.
