Pink Moon To Be Visible Over UK Tomorrow Night

April Pink Moon

While April's full moon will reach its peak at 7:12 a.m. "As the bright parts of the Moon appear to change shape during the month, each stage of the change is called a phase and each phase carries its own name". The name was given by the Native Americans, who used to name the full moons so they could keep track of their harvesting schedule.

The name comes from the Herb moss pink phlox, or "wild ground" phlox, which blooms in early spring in the United States and Canada.

The Pink Moon is the name given to April's full Moon, and is a moniker derived from Native American tradition. Picture: Getty Why is it called a "Pink Moon"?

What time is the April Pink Moon today? So the moon will nearly be a supermoon.

Mr McClure said: "Technicalities aside, however, the Moon appears full to the eye for a few days".

Despite its name, the moon will not actually look pink (stock image). There was still more celestial phenomena to come: In March, we caught sight of a supermoon; yet another event is in store early morning on Good Friday: an unbelievable-sounding full Pink Moon.

It would also represent a decline from the 5.9 million customers that the service picked up during the same period previous year . Rising costs are said to be as a result of covering the expenditure Netflix is pumping into producing its own original content.

According to Express UK, the April full moon isn't pink in colour. But the Moon will still be the biggest and brightest it will be all month, providing an unbelievable opportunity for stargazers to enjoy in its full glory.

What do full moons represent?

While the moon won't be pink it will still be a wraith site to see.

So, why is it called a full "Pink Moon?".

On the West Coast, the moon will start rising at about 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. on the East Coast, according to Space.com. 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.

Skywatchers will typically observe around 20 meteors per hour.
