      So in my neck of the woods (mid-East coast), I have a full moon known as the Flower moon in the Farmer’s Almanac

      WHEN TO SEE THE FULL MOON IN MAY 2021
      May’s full Flower Moon reaches peak illumination at 7:14 A.M. (EDT) on Wednesday, May 26. It will be very close to or below the horizon at this time, so plan to venture outdoors the night before (Tuesday, May 25) or on Wednesday night to get the best view of the bright full Flower Moon! Find a location with unobstructed views of the horizon, if possible. See what time the Moon will be visible in your area with our Moonrise and Moonset Calculator.

      A “BLOOD MOON” TOTAL LUNAR ECLIPSE… IF YOU’RE LUCKY
      This month’s full Moon coincides with a total lunar eclipse! A lunar eclipse occurs when Earth stands directly between the Moon and the Sun, which results in Earth casting its shadow on the Moon. During a total lunar eclipse, the Moon is fully obscured by Earth’s shadow, giving the Moon a reddish hue. This phenomenon is where the term “blood moon” comes from.

      Don’t get your hopes up too high for this one, though. This total lunar eclipse occurs in the pre-dawn hours of May 26 and will only be visible for stargazers in western North America, western South America, eastern Asia, and Oceania. Those who are located near the Rocky Mountains will be able to catch a glimpse of the partial lunar eclipse before the Moon sets below the horizon, but those further east won’t see much of anything at all, since the Moon will already be below the horizon at the time of the eclipse. Even on the West Coast, the Moon will be so low in the sky during the eclipse that you’ll need to find a high vantage point with a clear view of the western horizon.

      Educational and Fair use

      I was just outside admiring it!  Its so BIG and bright … I didn’t need any flashlight walking around and was wondering why.  Then I just read your post explaining why.  Thanks for the heads up info.
