May's Flower Moon:

May’s Full Moon is generally known as The Flower Moon. The peak of illumination will be reached on May 7, at

6:45 am. It will be the last Supermoon of 2020. Our ancestors used the lunar month to keep track of seasons. The names they gave for a full moon applied for the entire lunar month and connected with nature.

The most common name for May’s Full Moon is the Flower Moon. In the Northern Hemisphere, there are so many flowers that bloom in this period.

This is why the Native Americans, the Anglo-Saxons, and Germanic tribes named it this way. They were inspired by how colorful the flowers are in this month.
