The celestial phenomenon hasn't appeared in over a century

This Friday the 13th, a champagne-colored full moon will appear in the sky, a celestial event that has not occurred in almost a century.

The “Honey Moon,” as the June full moon is known, fell on the unlucky day for the last time in 1919. You’ll be able to watch its newest appearance on this live stream provided by Slooh, starting Thursday at 9:00 pm EDT. The live stream, which is streamed from the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands and the Pontificia Universidad Católica De Chile, will be accompanied by comments from astronomer Bob Berman. It will be two hours long.

Viewers are encouraged to photograph the phenomenon and share their impressions on Twitter with the hashtag #Sloohhoneymoon.
