The true meaning behind April's full pink moon

Phlox Flowers

April's full moon, known as the Pink Moon, will grace our skies on Good Friday, April 19.

According to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the next lunar event will occur July 16-17 where skywatchers in South America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia will be able to see a partial lunar eclipse.

While it's called the full Pink Moon, the moon will not appear to be pink.

Beyoncé's Homecoming Netflix Special Is Here, As Is A Surprise Album
Another musical surprise on Homecoming is the track of young Blue Ivy Carter singing " Lift Every Voice and Sing ". Lawson originally posted the video on Instagram in 2017, but later took it down.

The name comes from the Herb moss pink phlox, or "wild ground" phlox, which blooms in early spring in the U.S. and Canada. Supermoons happen when the full moon coincides with perigee, but the difference in size even for these "super" natural satellites is usually too small to notice for unaided eye.

Stargazers will be in a state of ecstasy this week, as a "Pink Moon" will illuminate the sky on Thursday, offering a spectacular visual treat for everyone. They used the different full moons to determine the coming season.

Though the Pink Moon is the most common nickname for April's full moon, it also has been called the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and the Fish Moon. So wait a few days for the moon to be a little less glamorous, and you may get lucky enough to see little pieces of Comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher that have been observed for more than 2,600 years. For best viewing check your local moon rise and set times.

This month, another lunar phenomenon, but not in a form of a supermoon, will appear in the night skies - the "Pink Moon".

So this is the flawless full moon to reorganise your daily routine, reinforce your relationships, and cut out any bad habits. The May full moon is known as the Flower Moon for all the flowers that bloom during that month.

Despite its name, the moon will not actually look pink (stock image).
