Full Moon on May 7. 

 

The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be will be fully illuminated.

When the moon is full, it rises at dusk, is directly overhead at midnight, and sets at dawn.

This phase occurs at 10:45 UTC.

This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Flower Moon because this was the time of year when spring flowers appeared in abundance.

This moon has also been known as the Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon.

The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.
