First Pink Supermoon of 2021

Maya Clemons, Editor: Virginia Bates

The pink moon is a supermoon. Supermoons appear to have an enhanced glow and look larger in the sky and could be around 7% bigger and around 15% brighter than the typical full moon, according to the Farmers’ Almanac.

The pink moon may be presumed to be a bright pink moon, but in reality, it will not actually be pink. Instead, it will look more golden.

The first supermoon will be Monday, April 26, 2021, at about 11:32 pm est and will end on Wednesday, April 28, 2021. If you miss seeing this first supermoon, the next will be visible on Wednesday, May 26, 2021, and is expected to be bigger and brighter than the first.
