The first full moon of spring will shine brightly tonight—signaling the start of the season!
Ahh, springtime. A time for warmer weather and blue skies. All parts of nature begin again and come back to life. It’s a symbol of renewal and a fresh start. What better way to say goodbye to the old and welcome in the new than with a celestial experience?
‘Tis the season for cherry blossom blooms and seas of flower fields—which is how this “pink moon” received its name—not from any actual appearance in color. Despite this, it will still take on a brilliant golden hue for all to enjoy.
No need for special tools to catch a glimpse of this lunar beauty, all you have to do is look up tonight at moonrise tonight (Thursday, April 6, 2023 — 8:06 p.m.) to enjoy it in all of its glory.
It’s also a Paschal Full Moon—the moon that determines what date Easter will fall each year, so make sure to add “gaze longingly at the Pink/Paschal Full Moon” to your list of ways to celebrate spring!
