Pink moon 2019: how to see April's full moon TONIGHT

Pink Moon

April's full moon will be visible to the United Kingdom tonight, which has in the past appeared pink because of the lunar orb hitting peak illumination.

Don't get too excited about the name "Pink Moon" however, it is not actually going to be pink.

It'll appear on Friday 12 April, beginning at 12.12 British Summer Time.

"Pink" refers to the pink ground phlox or "moss pink" plant that blooms in spring-not connected in any way with the moon's color. However, the moon will still be visible to skywatchers both Thursday and Friday night.

The April full moon has also been called the Egg Moon because it is the egg-laying season among animals and coincides with Easter season, along with other names such as Fish Moon.

Some of the original hoaxes, which apparently were first posted on personal Facebook pages, used digitally tinted versions of a NASA photo of a normal full moon like the one accompanying this article. Called as the Pink Moon, the phenomenon will occur on the night of Good Friday.

Stargazers are in for a treat this week, as a "pink moon" is expected to illuminate the sky.

Eminent spiritualist Cherokee Billie believes the Pink Moon "brings the stability and security to crystallise recent changes and make them permanent improvements". Based on state weather bureau PAGASA's astronomical diary, the full moon will be seen at 7:12 in the evening.

Just what you've all wanted, right?

Tribes such as the Algonquian traditionally kept track of time by naming the Moon's phases after particular events.

"This moon is at 29 degrees, which is the end of the sign, so something close to your heart is coming to fruition or reaching a natural conclusion". She continues, saying, "Mars in Gemini will keep the conversation flowing". "If you've been unhappy with the status quo, this will probably feel refreshing".
