A Pink Moon Will Be Seen In The Night Sky This Month, Here's What It Means

The pink moon is set to be seen in the night sky by avid watchers this month. 

However, the pink moon is not actually pink in color! It simply signifies the first full moon of spring. 


According to The Old Farmer’s Almanac, Native American tribes (and then, later, Colonial Americans) used a calendar based on cycles of the moon to mark the seasons, giving each full moon a name to reflect its time of year. These names tended to reflect things happening in the world during the full moon, rather than the appearance of the moon itself.

So, the pink moon is named, not for the moon’s color, but for the color of a spring flower known as “moss pink” or “wild ground phlox.” The Almanac reports that the April full moon is also sometimes called the “Sprouting Grass Moon,” the “Egg Moon,” and the “Fish Moon.”
