According to the Farmers Almanac, the full pink moon that graced the sky on April 26th was the first of two supermoons we will be experiencing this year. It appeared in it's full glory at 11:32 pm.

The moon appeared to be bigger and brighter but not pink in color! So, what gives?  How did it get the name pink supermoon? According to, the name has nothing to do with the color of the moon at all. It is named after the herb pink moss, aka mountain phlox, which is one of the earliest spring flowers to bloom in the United States. Our native Americans wanted to pay homage to the first flowers that appear in spring, thus deeming it the pink supermoon. Perhaps it's in my head, but I do think the moon had a pinkish hue in some of these photos..

Even though the name is supposedly false advertising, the moon sure was pretty on Monday night. Some very talented photographers captured impressive shots making the moon look so vivid and almost close enough to touch.
