A Full ‘Pink Moon’ Will Light Up the Sky This Week

Keep your eyes peeled for the full pink moon this month????You’ll be able to see it in the early morning hours on April 19th????Unfortunately, the full moon doesn’t actually appear pink ????It gets its name from wild ground phlox, a pink wildflower sprouting this time of year????Other names include the egg moon, fish moon, or sprouting grass moon????The best time to see it is 7:12 am ET, but that varies depending on your location ????This full moon traditionally determines when Easter will be celebrated????The holiday falls on the Sunday following the first moon after the spring equinox??
