CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- There will be a Full Moon tonight beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean on Florida's east coast just before 9 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Friday, May 24, 2013.  


This Super Moon will be 100% full at 12:25 a.m. before it sets at 6:51 a.m. the following Saturday morning.  The 2013 Super Moon will be around 17,000 miles closer than usual to Earth.


For those planning a stroll along the beach to watch the Super Moon, this Full Moon brings along with it a 4-foot plus high tide that will occur around 8:10 p.m., with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location.
