Astronomers, astronomers and photographers were struck by a full moon last night.
Moon viewers in Kamloops and Okanagan used mostly clear skies to get some amazing pictures of the April ‘Pink Moon’.
This is because of its name, flowering or creeping phlox According to The Old Farmers Almanac. The pink Super Moon had a golden hue, which is best seen when it first rises. It was about 15% brighter than the average moon.
Algonquin called the April Moon the Breaking Ice Moon, which marks the spring of rivers and lakes, according to the Almanac.
It was the first of two supermoons to appear in the night sky this spring.
The next Supermoon will appear on May 26th.
