Where Can I See The Pink Moon 2017? Here's Where To Look

There's a Pink Moon tomorrow here's what it means It signifies the start of many religious calendars

The Pink moon will appear to be full from April 10 to 12; those who want to enjoy this view can check moonrise and moonset timings at their locations on timeanddate.com. The Almanac reports that the April full moon is also sometimes called the "Sprouting Grass Moon", the "Egg Moon", and the "Fish Moon".

Those expecting to see a rosy hue might be disappointed.

The full moon in April got its name from Native Americans who called it the Pink Moon because it typically coincided with the bloom of pink flowers.

Everyone who wants to see the "full phase" of the Pink Moon - the point when the moon is precisely on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun - will be at 2:08 a.m. EDT on Tuesday, April 11.

As the moon rises Monday evening, it will snuggle up close to Jupiter and the bright star Spica.

The date of Easter is the first Sunday following the full moon, which itself follows the spring equinox. In the Southern Hemisphere, where autumn is just getting underway, it is called the hunter's moon.

Nope. The April full moon will look like any other ordinary full moon. However, the moon will appearfull to the naked eye for much longer; you should be able to see it any night between now and April 12. While spotting it is as easy as gazing upward, those hoping for the clearest view can consult the light pollution map to find the ideal moon-viewing spot in their area. As Space.com explains, the brightness of a full moon and lack of shadows make the details on its surface harder to see, particularly for those using a large telescope.
