“The moon will rise on the evening of 7 April and burn brightly all night long. You may even see it cast moon shadows on the ground,” The pink moon, or April full moon, is the closest supermoon of the year, which means that it is the largest, according to EarthSky.
The space agency explains that the moon will be at perigee, at 2:08 pm EDT on April 7. The moon will be full at 10:35 p.m. EDT that day.
“For people looking for something different to fill their evenings, the traditionally named ‘Pink Moon’ is an invitation from the cosmos to scan your sky and peer out at our celestial partner,” “A full moon is always a sight to see as the disk of the moon is fully illuminated for us to study in detail. Calling it a ‘Pink Moon’ is a reminder that spring is here and people of the past used to live their lives much more closely with what was happening in the nighttime sky.”
