‘Pink Moon’ to Rise Tonight
ETX- Sky watchers are encouraged to step outside tonight to catch a glimpse of this month’s full moon, also known as the pink moon. The pink moon is generally the term used for a full moon in April, however, the full moon will not be any different, nor will it be pink. Even so, everyone worldwide will get to see a full-looking moon shining near the golden planet Saturn – now nearly at its best for this year – from dusk until dawn. Tonight promises to be a great night for moon gazing, no matter where you are!
According to the Farmer’s Almanac, the Pink Moon gets its name from the herb moss pink, or ground, phlox, which is a spring flower that symbolizes the arrival of spring. The April full moon is also referred to as the Full Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg moon
