Today, the Full Pink Moon reached peak fullness at 7:12 a.m. Friday, April 19. 

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, April’s full Moon is called the Full Pink Moon because it appears at the same time as the “moss pink,” or wild ground phlox — one of the early spring flowers.

Other names you may hear include the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.

This year’s full Moon also is connected to Easter. It’s what’s known as the Paschal Full Moon.
