Full Moon was at 5:56pm CDT. It doesn't rise until 7:53pm CDT, but between 9:30pm and 11:30pm tonight take a look at it in all its glory.

Tonight is a perfect time to begin the tasks for the Moon Watcher's Award. All ten of the unaided eye features are on prominent display tonight; they constitute one-quarter of the entire mandated list.

The Full Moon was this morning at 4:26am. Many right now may not be in the mood with the ongoing flood and recovery. Just take a moment to look. After this past week it felt like the first time for me.

The next Full Moon will be Friday at 1:05pm CDT.

One can probably look at the waxing gibbous Moon tonight; the weather will probably be tolerant of skygazers from end of twilight at 8:33pm to 11pm.

The next Full Moon will be 14 November at 7:52am CST.

You may have heard that this will actually be a Supermoon, and that is correct! It's the closest one since 1948.

Full Moon was at 9:54am CDT this morning (yeah, that's right...devilish Daylight Time has returned). The Moon is a healthy altitude above the eastern horizon now, but due to the clouds basically looks like a giant masked light.

The Moon will be in conjunction with Jupiter early this nighttime period as they rise in the east. Then, the first Full Moon of spring 2017 will occur early tomorrow at 12:08am CDT.

The first Full Moon of the summer is 11:07pm CDT tonight. The chances of seeing it aren't that great. Below is the NOAA forecast for 11pm...
precipitation potential, 32%
sky cover, 61%
relative humidity, 88%

...resulting in a BAD viewing rating.

Here is the generated chart of 2017 lunar phases...
