Full “Pink” moon of April

We have clear skies to view the first full moon of the spring season which will be technically at full phase (when the moon is on the exact opposite side of the Earth as the sun) at 1:08 AM Tuesday, April 11. This full moon of April is called the Pink Moon because it is named after pink flowers called wild ground phlox which boom in early spring. These flowers are widespread through the United States and Canada this time of year.

The moon shines near the planet Jupiter all night which is to the upper right of the moon.

The moon will set in the west at 7:07 Tuesday morning and rise again in the east at 8:16 Tuesday evening. The weather looks pleasant for viewing the full moon with clear skies and cool night-time temperatures.
