If you missed last month’s full moon, don’t worry, because you still have another chance to catch this month’s full moon!

And this time, you won’t have to wake up at the crack of dawn or stay up past midnight to catch it.

Plan to head outdoors the night before and the night of peak illumination.

Another tip to consider when viewing the full moon is making sure you’re in an area with a clear view of the horizon.

What’s named the Flower Moon, May’s full moon is named after the arrival of spring and the blooming flowers that come with the season.

So when should you set your alarm to tilt your head towards the night sky?

Considering this full moon plans to be below the horizon, you’ll want to search the night sky on May 4 or 5.

Although who says you can’t catch the full moon on both nights to take a few pictures for social media.

So grab a friend, a blanket, and something hot to sip on while you try and find this month’s full moon!

Consider your Friday night plans a lock.

The full Flower Moon will reach peak illumination in the afternoon on Friday, specifically at 1:36 p.m. Eastern Time!

Here’s hoping for clear skies too!
