Outer space is home to a slew of new events and discoveries that help us learn more about what lies beyond our planet. These occurrences also allow us to see some of the most unique and once-in-a-lifetime events in human history, such as this weekend’s glimpse of the ‘pink moon.’
For the whole weekend, a rare full moon known as the ‘pink moon’ shone brightly in the night sky, elevating stargazing to a new level for space aficionados. The Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Fish Moon, Pesach, and Passover Moon are some of the various names for the pink moon.
The pink moon was visible in many parts of the world during the weekend, peaking at roughly 12:15 a.m. on April 17. According to reports, the pink moon’s essence will be visible to observers tonight, April 17, and will be visible until the morning of April 18.
It should be noted that the pink moon, which is an extremely unusual occurrence, is named after the herb moss pink, also known as creeping phlox, moss phlox, which is a plant endemic to the eastern United States and one of the first widespread flowers of spring.
The pink moon shone brightly in the night sky, and several people shared images of it taken from their respective locations. The moon seemed bright with a pinkish hue in some images on the internet, while it was visible in hues of orange in others.
