The moon will rise over Baltimore just before 8:30 p.m. tomorrow. Shortly after 10 p.m., astronomers say, it will be precisely full. As the third full moon after the vernal equinox, this is the Flower Moon, the Rose Moon or the Strawberry Moon. Luna is a terrific target for stargazers, especially through binoculars. But the moon's full phase is the worst time to look - too bright, too little contrast. Wait for a quarter moon or less, when long lunar shadows enhance details.
