Pink Moon To Be Visible Over UK Tomorrow Night

Pink Moon’ to rise in the sky on Good Friday File

- The full Pink Moon will be lighting up the night sky on Friday, but the lunar event won't actually be pink.

April's full moon was nicknamed the "pink moon" by Native Americans for the pink wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest flowers to grow in spring, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.

Accuweather reveals that the pink moon will be visible in all corners of the earth, and the space phenomenon can be watchable on both Thursday and Friday. This weekend's moon isn't just going to look good for many belief systems around the world, the "pink" moon also has cultural significance. The moon will be its normal light orange color, but because it's early spring, the April full moon has come to be known as the "pink moon". Check back later on this year to see the next article, as I'll be discussing the July, August, and September full moons!

The "Pink Moon" will occur on the morning of April 19.

Man arrested after boy falls from balcony at United States shopping centre
Police confirmed that there is video of the incident but said it will not be released until the investigation is complete. Police said Aranda tried to get away after the incident but was found later inside of the mall's transit station.

April's Pink Moon is named after Creeping phlox, a type of wildflower with small pink petals, which emerges at this time of year.

Here's everything you need to know. The magazine says tribes didn't have recorded calendars to separate time, days and seasons, so they used different moons to do so. Although the full moon will brighten the sky too much to see the meteors, the shower won't peak until April 22 into April 23.

The BBC said what makes this full moon special is that it marks important festivals and holidays: Easter Sunday, Hindus' Hanuman Jayanti, and the beginning of the Jewish Passover.

Sorry to disappoint, but it will still be a great time to check out the night's sky, since more than just the full moon will be in view.
