Here’s another update from SMBAS Blog on that large shining object which has frequently and mysteriously appeared in our nighttime sky this year (known to many as the moon).

May 5, 8:35 p.m. PDT — Full Flower Moon.   Flowers are abundant everywhere at this time.   May’s full moon was also known as the Full Corn Planting Moon or the Milk Moon.   The moon will also be at perigee just 25 minutes after turning full, at 12:00 a.m. EDT on May 6, at a distance of 221,801 miles from Earth.   Very high ocean tides can be expected from the coincidence of perigee with the full moon.

The next significant full moon will occur on June 4, 4:12 a.m. PDT.   Keep an eye on this spot for additional breaking news on this unprecedented event.

But that’s way too long to type in, and besides, you don’t need to go there because SMBAS has done the work for you!
