The largest supermoon in 2020, the super “pink moon”, will appear on the evening of April 7 and in the early hours of April 8,media CNET reported. And because it is the first full moon in the northern spring, it is traditionally referred to as the “pink moon”. Naming the full moon of April as the “pink moon” has nothing to do with the color of the moon itself, but because April is the day when wild pink Flucao flowers bloom.
A supermoon is a phenomenon in which the moon is near perigee when a new or full moon is a full moon. When the moon is at perigee, it happens to be a full moon, known as the super full moon. “On the evening of April 7th, when the moon was at the perigee, our nearest “neighbor” looked 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual. But it still won’t be pink.
According to the Old’s Farmer Almanac website: “To get the best view of this lovely spring moon, find an open area and observe the moon just above the horizon, when it will have the largest moon and a golden hue!” “
In the eastern United States, the pink Flucao flower was one of the first flowers to appear in the spring, NASA explains on its website. “Other names of the moon include the green grass moon, egg moon and fish moon in coastal tribes, because it is the time when the fish swimup upstream,” the agency said. “
