Article Short description
New York City is experiencing bright colors ahead of Easter, including a Pink Moon, set to peak on 6 April, according to Time Out. While the April full moon is the first of the astronomical spring, the name “Pink Moon” is a misnomer stemming from its timing with the spring bloom that sees the world painted in pink tones. In reality, the moon is yellow or orange. Weather permitting, the peak of the Pink Moon is expected to be visible at 00:34 ET on 6 April.
The Pink Moon will rise over New York this week: how to see it
Easter is coming, all of New York is in the colors of sakura and daffodils. There are plenty of bright colors in the city. If you want brightness also in the sky, then this week your wish will come true – on April 6, a Pink Moon will rise over New York, according to Time Out.
What is the Pink Moon and why is it called that?
The Pink Moon is just the full moon of April, the first full moon of the astronomical spring. And it’s actually not pink. It is called pink because the April full moon coincides with the spring bloom, and it seems that the whole world is painted in pink tones.
Due to the angle of incidence of light on the Moon and through the Earth’s atmosphere, the Earth’s satellite will appear yellow or even orange.
