Pink Supermoon will appear in UK skies Tonight

The UK will be able to see a supermoon tonight – known as the Pink Moon.

A Supermoon is when the moon’s orbit brings it closest to the Earth which means it will appear 14% larger and 30% brighter than the average moon.

This particular full moon is known as the Pink Moon as it’s the first full moon of spring in the northern hemisphere. The name derives from a pink flower called phlox subulata that blooms in spring in North America.

But its doesn’t mean the moon is going to turn pink this evening.

The weather is forecast to be dry with clear skies so everyone in the UK should get a good view of the supermoon.

The Super Pink Moon will officially peak at 03.35 on Wednesday morning, But you’ll be able to see it from around 8-9PM onwards on Tuesday night.
