You Don’t Want To Miss This: Tonight’s Full Pink Super Moon Will Be the Biggest of 2020
Tonight we’re going to witness the first and biggest and brightest full moon of 2020! April’s full moon, nicknamed the “pink moon,” is a super moon and here’s everything you need to know about the rare celestial view.
A super moon is the result of the full moon coinciding with the moon’s closest point of orbit in relation to the Earth, which is known as perigee. The result is that the moon is not only full, it looks closer to us and brighter than usual.
The April full moon is the first super moon this year. There will be another one in May, thought it won’t be quite as bright.
According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the full moon will reach its peak at 10:35 P.M. EDT on Tuesday night.
However, we have to dissapoint you. The moon will not take on a pink color, but will rather appear like any other super moon. It may be a yellowish color, or a brighter golden-orange once it nears the horizon.
