  • Pink Moon set to grace the skies

Maritime astronomer Bruce McClure of EarthSky.org said: "On both April 18 and April 19, 2019, you'll see a round full-looking moon in your sky".

The April Pink Moon is actually the full moon in the month of April. It's a great time of the year when that is the weather debate, and when flowers end up the nickname of a full Moon.

The Pink Moon will be fully visible around 4:12 a.m. PST and 7:12 a.m. EST. They knew it as the pink full moon because it rises over a landscape of the pink flowers of wild ground phlox, one of the first wildflowers to bloom in spring.

The Old Farmer's Almanac's website says: "Native peoples once observed the seasons by giving distinctive names to each recurring full moon". There's a new spectacular full moon in town, and it's going to be handsome.

Full Moons have appeared pink, yellow, red, blue, green, and (most often) orange.

If you are stargazing, you are in for another treat, as you just might see some meteors too! Thanks to the moon illusion, it will appear its largest when it first peers above the horizon.

Despite its name, there is no actual colour change in the appearance of the moon. This weekend's moon isn't just going to look good for many belief systems around the world, the "pink" moon also has cultural significance.

The full moon is the energetic peak of the moon's cycle and is a time when we can focus on manifesting, connecting to our intuition, and honing in on our spiritual practice.

What do full moons represent?

May's full moon is the Flower Moon, with all the blooming posies.
