Don't you just love those nights where you look up in the sky, and the moon is so big, full and bright? It makes me gasp in awe every time.

If you look up in the night sky this weekend, you might just have the same reaction.

The Pink Full Moon will be shining bright this Easter weekend! According to PennLive.com, it will reach its peak illumination at 2:57 p.m on Saturday April 16, though it will be full and visible the entire weekend.

If you're thinking "Really? The moon will look PINK?" Sorry to burst your bubble. The moon won't actually be pink. That would be gorgeous though. The name comes refers to the pink flowers that start to bloom this time in April, like the Phlox subulata plant, more commonly known as creeping phlox.
