Super Full Moon

The first of only two supermoons of 2021 rose in a Super Pink Full Moon on 26th April and you had a chance to watch it online if bad weather clouded out your view. Supermoons are full moons that appear bigger in the sky than usual, though the difference may not be noticeable to the casual observer.⁠

During the April full moon the moon was about 222,064 miles (357,378 kilometres) away from Earth, which is about 8% closer than the distance of an average full moon.⁠

April full moon is also called the Pink Moon, but it has nothing to do with its colour. According to NASA, the April moon got its name after the herb pink moss, also known as creeping phlox, moss phlox or mountain phlox, which is one of the earliest spring flowers appearing in the United States.⁠
