There's A Pink Moon Coming This Weekend

There's A Pink Moon Coming This Weekend

You may have heard of a blue moon but what about a pink moon?

Moon lovers and stargazers, it's time to turn your eyes up to the skies again to watch another handsome lunar spectacle on the night of Friday 19. Other full moon names given by Native Americans are Wolf Moon (January), Snow Moon (February), Worm Moon (March), Flower Moon (May), Strawberry Moon (June), Buck Moon (July), Sturgeon Moon (August), Harvest Moon (September), Hunter's Moon (October), Beaver Moon (November), and Cold Moon (December).

However, the moon can appear red-orange due to the composition of Earth's atmosphere and the angle at which it is viewed.

The next full moon will be the Flower Moon on May 18. The Pink Moon can also be called the Sprouting Grass Moon, Fish Moon, Hare Moon, Egg Moon or Paschal Moon.

"Pink Moon" is a traditional name.

Interestingly, many cultures believe the full moon's gravitational pull on a woman's amniotic fluids increases the chances of her going into labour if she is close to full term. Try and find a moon watching position without too many obstacles and look to the horizon where the moon will rise.

Rob Gronkowski Dented Patriots’ Lombardi Trophy Using It As A Baseball Bat
But Edelman did throw the ball, and just as it came Gronkowski's way, he put the trophy into bunting position and connected dead on, leaving a baseball-sized cavity right on its tip.


The suggestion is that a full moon's gravitational pull affects the amniotic fluid in the same way it affects the water in the sea and rivers, as well as influencing the levels of the hormone melatonin. She begins her 28-day journey in the new moon phase, when no light from the sun reflects off her surface, but it's during the full moon that we get to witness our Lady Luna's fullest light.

Here's everything you need to know.

Just what you've all wanted, right?

When is the next full moon and what is it called?

Back to the Moon.
