Is it a Full Moon tonight?
Although the Moon will look exceptionally big and bright tonight (June 23) the Full Moon will not peak until Thursday evening.
In strictly astronomical terms, a Full Moon arrives when the Moon and Sun directly opposed each other.
In other words, they are 180-degrees apart with the Earth in the middle.
