Events which occurred on 13 January.
- 1977 - Orlando Bloom, who would play Legolas in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, is born in Canterbury.
- 2009 - The Lord of the Rings: Conquest is published.
- T.A. 3019:
According to astronomy, the moon on that day of 3019, would have be a waning gibbous, which rises after midnight (and thus early on January 14) until it passes over the Misty Mountains and shine on the western side where the Gate was.
So the “Tale of Years” must be incorrect when it has the Company enter Moria before midnight on the 13th.
