Pink Moon Set To Illuminate Skies Tonight


Share this article


Set a reminder on your phone right now as April's full moon better know as the pink moon will appear in our skies tonight.

According to Space.com ''The moon will appear larger than average because it will be three days past perigee, the point in its orbit when it is nearest to Earth''

Although the name suggests the moon will appear a certain colour, that is not true. '' Instead, the moon is named pink after the colour of wild ground phlox, one of the early spring flowers ''
Interesting fact the Native Americans named the moons so they could keep track of their harvesting schedule.
And people seem to be pretty excited about it.

Make sure to set that reminder and witness what promises to be a spectacular sight.
