Join us on tall ship Matthew Turner to watch the sun set, the Full "Flower" Moon rise and see the Lunar Eclipse as the sail ends.
The Flower Moon is also called Corn Planting Moon and the Milk Moon. Barely a moment before it reaches its full zenith on May 15 there will also be a total lunar eclipse, at 9:11 pm . When there is a total lunar eclipse, the Moon and Sun are on opposite sides of Earth. Essentially, the Earth acts like a giant block, cutting out the light from the Sun reaching the Moon and obscuring it from view.
