Tomorrow Night Brings The Pink, Egg, Or Fish Full Moon

April’s full moon is known as the Pink Moon, but that’s not because it’s likely to turn pink. It’s actually named after pink wildflowers, which appear in the US and Canada in early spring. This moon, which you can see around 07:08 on Tuesday evening (if conditions allow) is also known as Egg Moon, due to spring egg-laying season. Some coastal tribes referred to it as Fish Moon because it appeared at the same time as the shad swimming upstream. This moon is important because it used to fix the date of Easter, which is always the first Sunday after the Pink Moon appears. The Pink Moon also heralds the beginning of Jewish Passover.
