The moon will be full at 2:39 p.m. EDT today. If skies are clear, we'll see it at 5:30 p.m., rising on Baltimore's eastern horizon. As the first full moon after yesterday's spring equinox, this is the egg moon or the Grass Moon in some cultures. For Christians, it's the Easter, or paschal moon. Easter is this Sunday, the second-earliest date possible for the observance, which by Church edict generally falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the equinox.
