According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, May’s full moon is known as the Full Flower Moon.  During the month of May, flowers are abundant just about everywhere in the United States. Other names for May’s full moon include the Full Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon. This will be the second full moon this month – which makes it a “blue moon.” Meaning it is a rare event and not actually blue in color.  Although the moon will appear full over the next 3 nights, the official full moon takes place on Saturday.
