While the moon will be full early Saturday morning, Sept. 14, at around 12:33 a.m., it may be visible on Friday, Sept. 13, depending on where you live, according to NASA.
Other names for the full moon of September, from Native American peoples, are the full corn moon and full barley moon, which are based on its proximity to harvest time for those two crops.

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.

Despite all those special qualities, the full moon this weekend won't be a particularly impressive site. That's more than 30,000 farther "out" than the closest point in the Moon's orbit, the perigee.More news: Rare Harvest Moon to appear for some on Friday the 13th
When viewed from Los Angeles, the Full Moon will peak around 9.32pm PDT.
