Purnima literally means Full Moon. Purnima refers to a tithi or the lunar day which normally falls once a month. This tithi divides the month into 2 fortnights; the Shukla Paksha and the Krishna Paksha. A full moon appears when the Sun and the Moon are separated by 180 degrees. On this day, the Moon remains like a well-illuminated full disc, causing high tides. It is only on Purnima days that lunar eclipses occur.
