The Pink Moon that showed up on Tuesday (April 7) night was the ‘Biggest Supermoon’ of the year.
The Pink Moon or Super Moon occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth. It does not, necessarily, appear pink. It just appears more golden, as it is closer. The name comes from a kind of pink flowers called the Moss Phlox, found in North America, that bloom around the time of April’s Full Moon.
Many people were able to witness this wonderful sight. Below is a collection of ‘Pink Moons’ as seen from different parts of the world:
