The Biggest Supermoon of the Year Can Be Seen Tuesday
We get three 'supermoons' a year, and this one will be the biggest and brightest.
Tuesday, April 7 is when the moon will come closest to Earth. It will be at its fullest at 10:35 p.m., but it will shine all night long. According to Earthsky.org, the moon will be up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter than a full moon at its farthest point from Earth.
This supermoon is also known as the pink supermoon. However, it won't appear pink. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, April’s full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of Phlox subulata, a pink wildflower native to eastern North America.
Hopefully, the clouds hold out so we can get a good look!
