Science and superstition are certain to collide as June’s full moon will occur precisely on Friday the 13th at 12:11 a.m. EDT.

When the Moon is Full by Penny Pollock is a children’s book of poems based on Native American names for moons through the lunar year.

According to USA Today, the last time the June full moon coincided with Friday the 13th was in 1919. Among the traditional names for the June full moon are Strawberry Moon and Honey Moon.
