Super Spring Moon

Super Spring Moon

Signs of spring are everywhere now, and the moon grows fat and full.  Tuesday, April 7 will be a full moon, the first full moon after the vernal equinox.

The full moon on Tuesday night is also called the Pink Moon, the Sprouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, Fish Moon, the Passover Moon, Paschal Moon, Hanuman Jayanti, and Bak Poya.  

It will also be a supermoon, which means the moon will be at its closest point to earth in its orbit.  The moon will appear bigger and brighter. You can read more about supermoons here.

While a supermoon  is a spectacular sight, the first full moon of spring  has been celebrated for thousands of years and is special to many cultures.  You can learn more about this full moon here on NASA website.

The moon will appear full Monday night through Thursday night.  May we celebrate and share this moon, and the hope of spring and life returning.
