Tonight is the Full Flower Blue Moon (May 18, 2019). Those of you with clear skies tonight will be lucky. My sky will be rainy and cloudy here in northern CA.
Excerpt from people DOT com/home/full-flower-blue-moon-what-to-know:
"While its title sounds like something that might have been made up, each of the moon’s descriptors actually have a meaning. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, this moon is referred to as “blue” not because of its color or appearance, but because it marks the third time in a season that there’s been a full moon.
“If a season has four full moons, then the third full moon in the season may be called a Blue Moon,” the Almanac reads."

I actually live out in an area where there are no lights. I should be able to see it.
Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully the sky will be clear but I think there's a chance of rain later tonight.

I just stepped out to see it. The moon is big and bright but it is white. Seems closer than usual to Earth.
Thank you for the heads-up. I love celestial events.

I watched it rise and it was a large and golden coming in view over the trees. Later at 3AM I went out on our deck. The moon was so bright I could see my shadow. The white brightness permeated through the trees in the woods. It was absolutely silent out with only a slight breeze.
