🌕 Full Moon

May 26, 2021 @ 6:14 am – May 27, 2021 @ 12:59 am America/Chicago Timezone

This is also the second of three supermoons for 2021. The Moon will be near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual. (6% bigger than average.)

In the northern hemisphere, 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.

In the southern hemisphere, this is the Full Frost Moon, or the Fall Moon. By this time of the year, the Southern Hemisphere begins it’s turn to winter. Fall has arrived and the air is chilled during the day and cold during the night. A ripe time for dew to settle on the land and turn to frost.
