Full moon rises on Friday the 13th

June 13, 2014 Updated Jun 13, 2014 at 6:24 PM CDT

NBC News reported the full moon peaked at 12:11 a.m. Eastern time on this Friday the 13th.

These two events will not sync up again until August 13, 2049.

They last matched up on August 13, 2011.

June moons are sometimes called "strawberry moons," a name given to them by Algonquin Indians who noted that June is traditionally strawberry season.

Studies have shown that traditional superstitions about Friday the 13th, including pregnant women going into early labor and increased rates of madness, hold no bearing in reality.
