A rare event is going to happen later this week. A full moon will occur just after midnight on Friday the 13th, making it the ultimate bad luck day for the superstitious, Universe Today reported today.

Friday the 13th is known as a Black Friday and some people see it as an ordinary day but many others see it as a day that brings bad luck.

Unlucky people might not want to leave their houses this Friday. The moon is scheduled to be full at approximately 12:12 AM Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, June 13, 2014. Nights like this do not happen often. The last full moon to fall on a Black Friday happened 14 years ago in October and it won't happen again until August 2049.

Friday, which happens to be the unluckiest day of the week coincides with a full moon this year. On nights with a full moon, people act bizarre, and crime rates seem to increase with hospital emergency rooms filling up. The upcoming full moon will be at the lowest point in the sky that it will be all year long.

For centuries, Fridays and the number 13 have always been seen as separately unlucky in some cultures. The number 13 has always considered to be unlucky, in fact a lot of folks are afraid of the number. People that fear the number 13 suffer from the recognized phobia, Triskaidekaphobia.

Additionally, astrophysicists think that they solved the 55-year mystery of the dark side of the moon this week. The mystery known to scientists as the Lunar Farside Highlands Problem dates back to when the Soviet spacecraft transmitted the first photos of the dark side of the moon in 1959. According to scientists, the dark side was likely caused when the moon was formed and it could be a result from the heat from the Earth.
