April Pink Supermoon

The biggest and the brightest Full Moon of 2020. Its distance to the Earth (357,034 km) on April 8th is the shortest this year.

The “pink” in the name is related to wild flowers (genus Phlox) that bloom in pink around that time. It is also called the Egg Moon, the Fish Moon, the Sprouting Grass Moon.

Paschal Full Moon is the first Full Moon of spring in the Northern Hemisphere and it determinates the date of Easter (first following Sunday).

Supermoons appear larger and brighter than usual Full Moons.
