The Full Moon for the month of April will be at 6.25am Eastern Time on Sunday, April 20th. The April moon is called the “Full Pink Moon” due to the early blossoming of “grass pink” or wild ground phlox, one of the first spring flowers. I guess you could say the moon this month is “in the pink.” 🙂
The moon will be one of the featured objects to look at during public nights at the James C. Veen Observatory this year. Please check the Public Night page on the GRAAA website for more information.
