Full Moon Tonight: March 16, 2014

 
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- There will be a Full Moon tonight on Sunday, March 16, 2014 beginning with a moonrise over the Atlantic Ocean at 7:43 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location)

The Full Moon will technically be 99.7% full at 1:09 p.m. before it sets the following morning at 7:51 a.m.  A Full Moon in March has seasonal names such as a "Worm's Moon" or "Lenten Moon."


For those planning a moonlit stroll along the beach on the U.S. East Coast, this Full Moon brings along with it a 3.5-foot Atlantic Ocean high tide that will occur around 8:40 p.m., with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location.  A very low tide will occur at 2:45 a.m. Thursday morning.
