BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Wednesday night, Skywatchers will enjoy a May full moon, known as the Full Flower or Milk Moon.

The moon will appear in the constellation Libra and exact moment of fullness will occur at 5:42 p.m. EDT as calculated by timeanddate.com, so most East Coast residents won’t be able to see that exact moment — but the moon will still appear full in the sky over the course of the night.

The moon turns full at 4:42 pm. Moonrise is at 7:39 pm.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, “May’s Full Moon was called the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. The May Moon marked a time of increasing fertility, with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.”
