ATLANTA, USA (CNN) – If you’ve been a fan of looking into the sky and its stars, you certainly didn’t want to miss the sight of the largest and brightest pink moon of 2020, which the world witnessed yesterday night, Tuesday.

A giant moon is a full moon that occurs when it is at the closest point to Earth in its orbit.

The name of the first full moon in the spring season comes from North American wildflowers, which bloom in early spring and are known as “Phlox Subulata,” meaning “pink moss,” according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac website.

In April, the full moon is also known as the “grass of the moon” or “egg moon”, which indicates other signs of spring.

Although its name is the pink moon, it is usually golden, when it rises above the horizon. This is due to the influence of the atmosphere, as happens with the sun when it is redder during sunrise and sunset, according to the US space agency “NASA”.

It is reported that 12 complete satellites appear within one year on a monthly basis. This will not be the case in October 2020, as the “blue moon” will appear twice in the same month, one on October 1 and then again on October 31.

Perhaps you should watch the sky in mid-April, if you want to see Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and the moon in beautiful alignment. According to NASA, this phenomenon will not be repeated until a few years later.
