Tonight (April 8), you’ll be able to catch a glimpse of a rare super ‘pink’ moon. It will be the biggest supermoon of the year and 2020’s second super full moon.

It’s given the name ‘pink’ moon due to the blooming of spring flowers in North America. And while onlookers won’t witness pink colours, per se, the moon will appear larger and brighter than usual due to its proximity to the Earth.

The phenomenon is actually an optical illusion that makes the moon appear bigger than normal.

The next super ‘pink’ moon isn’t expected to return until April 2021, making tonight a special opportunity to catch the spectacular sight.

You can catch the moonrise after 6:30 pm in Auckland, New Zealand and after 6 pm in Sydney, Australia, according to timeanddate.com. 11 pm appears to be the best time to see it as the moon is at its highest peak in the sky.
