THE FIRST FULL MOON OF THE SECOND QUARTER     ..   The first full Moon of the 2nd Quarter occurs in April in the Northern Hemisphere,   October in the Southern.     It is known as Seed Moon,   Early Spring Moon,   Fish Moon,   Growing Moon,   Pink Moon,   Sprouting Grass Moon,   Walking Moon,   or Hanuman Jayanti (Hindu).     The second quarter starts after the Vernal Equinox and ends with the Summer Solstice.         A Full moon is a lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is on the opposite side of Earth as the Sun.     When viewed from Earth,   the hemisphere of the Moon that is facing the Earth (the near side)   is almost fully illuminated by the Sun   and appears round.     The opposite hemisphere of the Moon,   which is not visible from Earth (the dark side),   remains completely unilluminated.     Many (Lunar) calenders are based on the phases of the moon   including the Cherokee (Ani-yvnwiya),   Celtic,   Chinese (Traditional),   Germanic,   Hebrew,   Hindu,   Islamic,   Mayan,   Neo-Pagan,   Thai,   and Tibetan.     Full moons have deep folklore associations with insomnia,   insanity,   magic,   and lycanthropy (i.e. Werewolves).     The terms Lunacy or Lunatic are a result of this associasion.         Full Moon's occur at the same time everywhere on Earth,   however   the local time will depend on the time-zone the viewer is in.     The times are based on the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC),   so you would have to adjust for your time.     If a person was in Chicago, USA (UTC -6),   a Full Moon at 5:38 am UTC would actually occur on January 26th at 11:38 pm.         Because the time of the full moon is based in the UTC (0) time zone,   other time zones (especially the far east time zones of UTC -12 and UTC +14)   may experience the full moon on a day earlier or later.   The full moon happens at the same moment everywhere,   but due to the different time zones it can spans three days.   ..
