April’s Full ‘Pink Moon’ Lights Up Night Sky

April 8, 2020 | 0 Comments

A full moon graced the skies over the island last night [April 7] as April’s ‘Pink Moon’ was visible on a mostly clear night.

Space.com said, “The full moon of April, called the Pink Moon, will occur on Tuesday at 10:35 p.m. EDT, about 8 hours after reaching perigee, the nearest point from Earth in its orbit. This will create a “supermoon,” a full moon that appears slightly larger than average.

“The smaller distance between Earth and the full moon makes the supermoon appear about 7% larger than the average full moon and 14% larger than a full moon at apogee, or its farthest distance from Earth — also known as a “minimoon.” A supermoon also appears up to 30% brighter than a full moon at apogee.”
