Now, this is a good reason to step outside. And this one is pink, sort of.
Tuesday and Wednesday will see the largest super pink moon of the year as the lunar orb makes its closest approach to Earth this year. According to Space.com, the name is because the April full moon often corresponds with the blooming of pink flowers in eastern North America.
The moon will be only 221,918 miles from Earth on Tuesday. The average lunar distance, according to NASA, is 238,855 miles. Back on March 24, the moon was 252,700 miles away, the farthest it will be in 2020. Experts say the best time to see the supermoon is when it rises. Information on when that happens can be found here
Tonight, the full Moon will be at perigee — the closest point in the Moon’s orbit to Earth, making it appear bigger and brighter in the sky. 🌕✨
