The next full Moon will be on Tuesday night, April 7. It’s also a “supermoon,” the largest of the full Moons this year.

The full moon tonight is also known as the “Pink Moon” as it is the full moon of April. “Pink moon” is just a nickname from folklore — a reference to moss pink, or wild ground phlox, whose pinkish flowers are among spring’s earliest flowers in the eastern United States.

The Moon will be full on Tuesday night, April 7, 2020, appearing opposite the Sun (in Earth-based longitude) at 7:35 PM. The Moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Monday night through Thursday morning.

This full Moon will be slightly closer to the Earth (about 0.1%) than the March full Moon was, so this will be the “most super” of the full supermoons this year.

Moonrise is at 7:27pm tonight local time.
