April Pink Moon

In some areas tonight and everywhere tomorrow on April 11th, if you look up at the sky, you're going to see an annual event but one that also only occurs once a year: the Pink Moon. But despite its name, tonight's moon is not a watered-down version of the fiery-red Blood Moon.

As the smallest full moon of the year, you could refer to The Pink Moon perhaps as the "Tiny Moon". The Pink Moon is also not actually pink but instead is nicknamed such in relation to “moss pink” or more commonly “wild ground phlox” which is traditionally seen as a signifier of spring.

Every full moon has its own special name: later this year in May, we've got the Flower Moon; in June, we can look forward to the Strawberry Moon; the Hunter's Moon rises in October; and in November, it's the Beaver Moon.

In different cultures the April moon goes by other names including the Egg Moon, the Fish Moon, and the Sprouting-Grass Moon.

This year, the Pink Moon/Egg Moon will reach its fullest point around 07.08 a.m. on the 11 April (in the UK) but it will also look full tonight.


Shamanic Quest runs regular Moon Lodges at The Clophill Centre in Bedfordshire. Our next Moon Lodge is 13 April starting at 19.30 p.m. and all are welcome.  Further details can be found  here

Mostly people like to visit hill or mountain places or forest but after reading your description about nature, I feel that I am in that season and enjoy the beauties of the nature. It's most important to post this type of article for the visitor appreciation.
