  • The Pink Moon rises above the Wasatch Front Tuesday

A Native American tribe gave the Pink Moon its name to represent the spring blooms of a wild flower called phlox subulata.

The Pink Moon then peaked in brightness earlier today (April 8) when the Moon aligned with the Sun in a straight line.

Supermoons can appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than full moons that are farthest away from Earth, and about 7 percent larger and 15 percent brighter than a regular full moon.

The peak occurred at about 4.35am BST (3.35am UTC) and the peak only lasted a brief moment.

Another urged fellow tweeters: "That moon is attractive tonight". Of course, if you can't go outside to view it without encountering a crowd, it'll look plenty attractive from one of your windows.

No, the moon isn't actually pink, but April's full moon was given the name as it "heralded the appearance of the moss pink", according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

Stargazers have enjoyed the emergence of what is known as a pink moon in the night skies of Europe.

The supermoon, known to astronomers as a perigee-syzygy moon, occurs when a full moon happens at the same time when the moon reaches the point of its orbit closest to Earth.

"Spiritually, the Pink Moon always signifies rebirth and renewal". A full moon becomes a Super Full Moon when it is at its closest point to Earth.
