  • That's one of the topics were explaining today on CNN.

  • 10.

  • Thank you for watching this Friday.

  • I'm Carla Zeus at the CNN Center.

  • First story takes us to the hurricane struck Bahamas, where search and rescue crews are combing their way through the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama.

  • They took a direct hit from Hurricane Dorian on September 1st.

  • It roared over those islands as a Category five hurricane, and it left roughly 70,000 people homeless.

  • Officials say at least 50 people were killed, but the Bahamian government expects that number will go up a lot as Maur areas are explored.

  • The number of people who are missing is 1300.

  • Previously, the government had said almost twice as many people were unaccounted for.

  • But on Thursday, after comparing information from different records, officials revised their count.

  • The Bahamian government is trying to set up housing for people who have lost their homes.

  • It says it's committed to restoring their lives and rebuilding their communities.

  • The U.

  • S government is helping the island nation with everything from keeping track of the missing to getting supplies to those in need American officials say they've made their first check of the hard hit Northern Islands, and the U.

  • S.

  • Coast guard says it's rescued more than 400 people so far, the British government is also helping out the commanding officer of a British supply ship, says some people on Little Abaco Island.

  • We're completely cut off by the hurricane that they hadn't seen anyone outside of their community since the storm hit and that they were out of food and water when the ship arrived.

  • Which word best describes the path of the moon's orbit around the earth?

  • Circular, helical, elliptical or two royal?

  • The moon's orbit is elliptical, which means it's not always the same distance from earth.

  • It's a full moon in the harvest moon and a micro moon and a Friday, the 13th Moon.

  • If you see the moon tonight, you're seeing an example of how Fridays are awesome.

  • Here's what's happening.

  • The entire circular disc of the moon will be lit up tonight, making it a full moon and because it's the full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox the first day of fall, that makes it a harvest moon.

  • But here's where things get a moon zing.

  • The moon is also an apogee, its farthest point away from Earth.

  • So scientists say it'll appear smaller than a full moon Normally does.

  • That makes it what they call a micro moon.

  • And this is all happening on Friday the 13th.

  • So the date makes this a super rare full harvest.

  • Micro moon.

  • How rare?

  • Affiliate K N.

  • W.

  • A.

  • Says the last time a full moon was an apogee on this date was in 18 32 and the next time all this will happen is in the year 25 24.

  • So you moon eyed moon gazers should try to get a glimpse of our nearest natural satellite tonight because you're gonna have to wait a long time to see it again.

  • Many of the moon's nicknames date back to the early Native Americans.

  • They named each full moon and every month to help them keep track of their planting and harvesting schedule.

  • The full moon in April is known as the pink moon, signaling the first appearance of the wild ground flocks, one of the earliest spring flowers.

  • When you have two full moons in a calendar month, the 2nd 1 is called the Blue Moon, one of the more notable moon's harvest moon in October, also known as the Hunter's Moon, or the blood Moon.

  • This is when the leaves are falling off the trees and the animals are fat.

  • So this signal two tribes.

  • It was time to hunt all they could to get them to that long winter.

  • And another thing to note is that the moon does not appear pink during the pink moon red during the blood moon or blue during the blue moon.

  • The only thing that can really alter the way we see the moon is if there's a lot of dust, haze, ash or smoke in the atmosphere.

  • Moon can sometimes have an orange or red glow.

  • Cnnheroes profiles everyday folks from around the world who are taking steps to help their communities and having an extraordinary impact on them.

  • So it makes sense that someone whose organization provides people in need with food, clothing and emotional support would be part of this series.
