Viewed from the UK, the Moon will peak in brightness at 3.36am BST.
The peak will occur when the Sun and Moon are perfectly aligned at a 180-degree angle.
In strictly astronomical terms, this will only last a brief moment.
But according to the US space agency NASA, the Moon will appear full to the naked eye for about three nights centred on this peak.
So if you look up at the skies late on Friday, you are bound to be dazzled by the lunar orb’s intense glow.
