13 November 98

Friday the 13th

Today is Friday the 13th! Why is this particular day considered unlucky, and just how uncommon is it? Are there years with no Friday on the 13th? Can there be two in a row in successive months? What's the most there can be in a single year? This must be a good omen for our Joshua Tree trip next week, since the Leonid Meteor Shower might give us a spectacular sky show very early in the morning on Tuesday, November 17. We will have no moon and (hopefully) clear desert skies for a perfect view.
