Will we see a pink full moon Monday night?

There's a Pink Moon tomorrow here's what it means

What does the Pink Moon mean? The full moon of April will shine the brightest from April 10 to April 12.

"In Indian mythology, we have our own way of celebrating full moons, such as Buddha Purnima and Guru Purnima", he said. Tribes noticed that pink moss, also known as a wild ground phlox, heralded the full moon. Other countries also call it the fish moon or the sprouting grass moon.

What causes a Pink Moon?

Move over, blue moon - it's the "pink moon's" time to shine! Some believe that he was born a day before the Full Moon day, and some believe that he was born on the Full Moon day itself.

Pink moon or April's full moon will decorate the skies on April 11, 2017. The weather looks pleasant for viewing the full moon with clear skies and cool night-time temperatures.

First, this moon determines the date of Easter.

Below, to celebrate the pink moon, see some wonderful recent photos of pink flowers from our readers... For the skywatchers on West Coast, the moon will be at its peak at 11:08 on Monday (April 10).

"Egg Moon" is another name people use to refer to this lunar event, if it falls before Easter.

Well, this month's is more important than any other as it marks the beginning of several religious holidays.

Of course, whether you'll be able to see the moon will depend largely on your local weather, as cloud cover will ruin any good opportunities you'll have.
