"Honey moon"  

A full, yellow 'honey moon' will rise tonight: A must-see

No human has seen tonight's full honey moon in almost 100 years

As the clock ticks over to 12:11am (EDT) tonight, the world will experience the first full honey moon on Friday the 13th in almost 100 years. It will appear golden and huge in the sky, so pay attention because it will not happen again until June 2098. Also, remember to watch out for werewolves too.

This Friday the 13th will be extra-beautiful (or creepy, depending on your perspective) because this month's full moon coincides with its perigee—when it's closest to earth during its orbit—so it will appear super large on the horizon. Pair that with the June summer solstice—when the sun cuts its highest path in the sky—and a smattering of atmospheric dust and pollution, and the whole thing will give off an amber—or "honey"—hue.
