The flower moon, also called Mother’s Moon and Milk Moon, will appear in its full glory on May 29 at 10:20 a.m. Eastern Standard Time.
The full moon gets its name from the fact that wildflowers like Bluebells, indigo, lupine, sundrops, and violets, bloom during late spring. The celestial event has significance for people following Pagan religion.
According to Old Farmers’ Almanac, the time of the flower moon is also the time for increased fertility. It is believed that the warm temperature presiding at that time is suitable for bearing a child.
