Amazing Photos of the May ‘Flower Moon’ Rising

In case you didn’t get a chance to look up into the sky Wednesday night, or the clouds blocked your view of the full May “flower moon,” don’t despair. Plenty of sky watchers with a clear view of the glowing moon snapped photos and posted them on social media.

Here’s a sampling of the scenic photos we spotted as the moon was rising in the eastern sky over New Jersey, New York City and other spots in the Northeast.
