(NEW YORK) — If you have a thing for moon phases or numbers then mark your calendar for this upcoming celestial event.

“The midwinter full moon has a high trajectory across the sky, causing it to sit above the horizon for a longer period of time,” Farmers’ Almanac explained.
The final full moon of the lunar cycle this year, and of the decade, is also known as the “Long Night’s Moon” — a fitting title as winter solstice nears which brings longer, darker nights.
And to top off the numerical calendar fun, the next day is Friday the 13th.
