Continuing down along the bright arc of our Milky Way Galaxy, from left to right crossing the constellations of the Twins and the Bull, notable appearing nebulas include the Tadpole, Simeis 147, Monkey Head, Jellyfish, Cone and Rosette nebulas. In the upper right quadrant of the image, toward the constellation of Orion (the hunter), you can see Sh2-264, the half-circle of Barnard's Loop, and the Horsehead and Orion nebulas.Famous stars in and around Orion include, from left to right, orange Betelgeuse (just right of the image center), blue Bellatrix (just above it), the Orion belt stars of Mintaka, Alnilam, and Alnitak, while bright Rigel appears on the far upper right.This stretch of sky won't be remaining up in the night very long -- it will be setting continually earlier in the evening as mid-year approaches.Tomorrow's picture: old stones and mars < Archive Submissions Index Search Calendar RSS Education About APOD Discuss >

Full moons: They’re spooky, they’re exciting, and they’re bursting with emotional lunar energy.
In astrology, full moons are all about endings. They shine their light on the past month, so you can take stock, spot problems, and tie up any loose ends. “Full moons have always been seen as moments in time in which the astrological energy comes to a climax,” Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com, previously told Refinery29.
These celestial happenings can also occur in any of the twelve zodiac signs, and each lunation carries the traits of the sign it’s in. A full moon in Leo may feel theatrical or dramatic, for instance, while a full moon in Gemini can bring about confusion.
Each month’s full moon also go by one or more names, such as the Wolf Moon or the Harvest Moon. The origins of these labels are a little hard to pin down, but they tend to match up with seasonal happenings; the Harvest Moon comes during the start of fall harvest season, for instance. They’re thought to be derived from a mix of Native North American, Anglo-Saxon, and Germanic month names, reports Newsweek.
Astrologers often recommend using full moons as an opportunity to spend some quiet time by yourself or with trusted love ones, reflecting on the past month and setting your intentions for the next one. To help you plan out these mini-meditations, though, you need to know when the moon will be full.
The dates for full moons in 2021:
January 28, 2021: Full Wolf Moon in Leo
This full moon is known as the Wolf Moon because wolves tend to be most vocal around this time of year, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac. It’s also called the Hunger Moon or the Old Moon.
February 27, 2021: Full Snow Moon in Virgo
The second month of the year is snowy, hence the name of this full moon. You may also hear it called the Midwinter Moon.
March 28, 2021: Full Worm Moon in Libra
This one takes some explaining: In spring, the weather begins to warm and the worms begin to appear in the soil once again (yuck). This full moon is also known as the Wing Moon or the Spring Moon.
April 26, 2021: Full Pink Supermoon in Scorpio
Supermoon 2021 Astrology Calendar
Unfortunately, the Full Pink Moon isn’t actually magenta-hued. Its name comes from the herb moss pink flower that blooms in early spring, though it’s sometimes called a Frog Moon. This year, April’s full moon will be as close as it can get to Earth, making it appear extra big and bright — a phenomenon known as a supermoon.
May 26, 2021: Full Flower Supermoon in Sagittarius; also a total lunar eclipse
In May, blooms really start to blossom, hence the name Flower Moon or Budding Moon. This year’s is also a supermoon.
June 24, 2021: Full Strawberry Supermoon in Capricorn

July 23, 2021: Full Buck Moon in Aquarius
July’s moon is called the Full Buck Moon because it’s normally around the time when the new antlers on bucks begin to show. It’s also known as the Blueberry Moon.
August 22, 2021: Full Sturgeon Moon in Aquarius, and a seasonal blue moon
The Sturgeon Full Moon is named for the sturgeons of the Great Lakes; August is when they’re most easily caught; August is also corn season, which is why this moon can be called the Corn Moon. The term seasonal blue moon refers to it being the third (sometimes fourth) full moon of a particular season — in this case, summer.
