Pink Moon in April’s Night Sky
There’s something mystical and magical about the moon. And if you ask the oceans and seas you know there’s something scientific about it too. For eons of time, man has looked up to the sky in amazement and wonderment.
Tonight, when you look up in the sky, cloud cover permitting of course, you’ll be able to see what is called a Pink Moon. According to Space dot com;
April’s full moon is known as the Pink Moon, but don’t expect it to look particularly pink. It is named after pink flowers called wild ground phlox, which bloom in early spring and become widespread throughout the U.S. and Canada this time of year. In fact, the April full moon is the first full moon of spring in the Northern Hemisphere (it’s the first fall season full moon in the Southern Hemisphere).
So, if you happen to be up to let the dog out tonight, or can’t sleep, step outside and if our skies are clear, check out The Pink Moon.
