Why Full Pink Moon Happens and When it’ll be Visible?

The Pink Full Moon will be seen in the sky on Saturday, April 16 and it will continue till Monday, April 17, providing an Easter treat for stargazers. This astrological phenomena will not only be visible for a moment or a night, but for the entire weekend.

The term “full moon” refers to a lunar phase that happens once a month when the sun, Earth, and moon all coincide in an imaginary 180-degree line. 

According to Andrea Jones, a NASA science communicator, the moon’s orbit is roughly 5 degrees different from Earth’s, so it is usually a little higher or lower than Earth’s shadow, allowing the sun’s rays to shine its near side, or the side facing Earth.

When will the Pink Full Moon be visible?

According to NASA, the moon is only full for a brief moment at 2:55 p. m. EDT (18:55 GMT) on Saturday, April 16, but it will appear full in complete from the morning of Friday, April 15 through the early morning hours of Monday, April 18.

However, the moon will not be visible above the horizon in North America until after sunset on April 16.

Why is it known as Pink Full Moon?

Although it is commonly assumed to be named after the hue of the earth’s natural satellite, it is actually called for the vivid pink blooms of creeping phlox or moss phlox (scientific name Phlox subulata), a plant endemic to eastern North America, which bloom in early spring.

What is the Significance of Pink Moon 2022?

The full moon in April is known as the Pink Moon because it coincides with the blooming of pink wildflowers in North America. However, the moon will not be pink in color. The moniker Pink Moon is a little misleading because the full moon will glow orange rather than pink. The full moon in April is also known as the ‘Sprouting Grass Moon,’ the ‘Growing Moon,’ and the ‘Fish Moon’.

Date and time of Pink Moon 2022 in India

According to NASA. On Saturday, April 16, 2022, it will be at its fullest. At 12:25 a.m. on April 16, the Pink Moon will be lighted for a brief minute. While it will light up the sky all weekend long, from April 16 to April 18, it will be at its fullest on April 17 at 12.15 a.m.
