Look Up in the Sky Tonight For the 'Pink Super Moon'


Look Up in the Sky Tonight for the "Pink Super Moon"

The biggest and brightest "supermoon" of 2020 will appear tonight (Tuesday, 4/7/20). The full Super Moon will occur precisely at 10:35 p.m. EDT this evening!

Now, a "supermoon" occurs when the moon is especially close to the Earth while it is full. Also, the closeness to Earth, makes the moon look extra-close and extra-bright – some say the moon will appear approximately up to 15% bigger and about 30% brighter than a typical full moon.

Is it Pink in color? It's not... According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, April’s full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of Phlox subulata, a pink wildflower. 

Tonight's Full Moon, is one of just 13 full moons, we can check out in 2020.
