Another photogrpaher, David Shockey, also captured the flower moon over Lake Erie.

The "Flower Moon" appeared at 6:45 a.m. ET, according to NASA.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac , some Native American tribes call it a "Flower Moon" because of the supposed large number of flowers that bloom in May.

NASA said the moon is also known as the Corn Planting Moon, Milk Moon, and the Vesak Festival Moon.
