Space fanatics can consider themselves unusually lucky as a large "honey moon" will coincide with Friday the 13th.
The sighting will mark the last time that a full moon falls on such a date in June until 2098, said Universe Today.
The honey moon occurs when the sun hits its highest path through the sky and the moon moves at its lowest, according to National Geographic.
The amber hue results from the "scattering of longer wavelengths of light by dust and pollution," the magazine reported.
The moon will also show up larger in the sky than normal, as its perigee — the point at which it's closest to Earth in its orbit — coincides with the full moon, Gizmodo reported.
Skywatchers saw the honey moon at full phase at 12:13 a.m. ET on Friday morning, but anyone who missed it can still catch the phenomenon tonight, said the Los Angeles Times.
Twitter users caught some spectacular photos of the honey moon on Friday morning and in the early evening. The social network is certain to fill up with plenty more.

If you missed it - Honey Moon late last night. Won't see another until 2049. You might catch the end of it tonight. pic.twitter.com/GiqJqsHN43— dagmarducati (@dagmarducati) June 13, 2014
