Pink Moon 2022: Night In Photo PinkMoon

Best seen as dusk on Saturday, April 17, 2022, the “Pink Moon” was pictured around the world draped in muted orange and yellow light as it appeared on the eastern horizon.

In the United States, one traditional Native American name for this full moon is the Pink Moon, according to the Farmer's Almanac and a NASA overview.

The full moon of April will rise tonight (April 16), amid Easter, Passover, Ramadan and spring celebrations around the world.

The moon reaches peak illumination at 2:57 P.M. ET. Stargazers on the western hemisphere will still see the brighter moon after sunset, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac.

The Moon will continue to appear bigger and brighter for the next few fill moons, as its orbit approaches Earth. Both June and July will see supermoons, as the satellite makes its closest pass to Earth.

The pink moon will be full from Friday morning to Monday morning, according to NASA. On Saturday, April 16, 2022, it will be at its fullest.

This full moon corresponds to Hanuman Jayanti for Hindus which is the birth of Lord Hanuman. It is celebrated in most areas on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Chaitra.
