The exact time the moon will be full will be at 1.36pm BST, although obviously this wont be visible to us.

The full moon coming tonight is also considered by some to be the Paschal Moon.

Sunset tonight is 7.32pm, so if youre out enjoying the bank holiday, you should be able to catch it from then onwards.

Its also thought to determine when Easter falls, and its usually the first Sunday after the Paschal Moon (as it is this year).

This is due to where February was situated in relation the synodic months, so there was no full moon that month and they fell at the end of January and start of March instead.

There are plenty of other factors that set the exact date of Easter, including Golden Numbers and when the Equinox falls, so the Paschal Moon is not an exact science.
