Weekend Flashback: 6/13-6/15

You’d think that a full moon that falls on Friday the 13th would have some sort of menacing, fear-inducing nickname. Apparently “Blood Moon” was taken because the moon we saw on Friday was called “Honey Moon” for its sweet, amber color. According to the WaPo, the last time a full moon fell on a Friday the 13th was 14 years ago on Oct. 13, 2000. It won’t happen again until Aug. 13, 2049. Hopefully, the next time it falls on Friday the 13th, they’ll call it something more apropos, like “Evil Orb of Destruction.”
