Last full moon on Friday the 13th for 35 years

CLEVELAND - Friday evening will offer a great viewing opportunity of the "strawberry"or "honey moon" of June.

Although this month's full moon reached fullness early Friday morning at 12:11 a.m., skies will be mostly clear across northern Ohio Friday evening for another viewing of one of the few full moons to fall on a Friday the 13th..

On average, this event occurs once about every 14.3 years. Astronomers say it last happened in October 2000, but won't take place again until August 2049.

So, make sure you get out to see this once in a lifetime event, for some.

Our partners are USA Today had viewers submit pictures of the moon earlier today from around the world...
