Pink Moon

Pink Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Fish Moon, however you choose to call it, is happening tonight, Tuesday, April 11. You’ll have to put on your rose colored glasses if you want to see this moon in pink though. This full moon, the first one of spring, gets its pink name because it generally coincides with the blooming of ground phlox, a flowering plant that is also known as moss pink.

Moonrise is at 7:51.  Go out and enjoy.

Phlox subulata or moss pink.
