Dear Commons Community,
The moon will be a little “pink” tonight (April 26, 2021).
The first supermoon of the year will arrive officially at 11:33 p.m. ET, according to the Farmers’ Almanac. You can start viewing it a little after sundown depending upon your location. The full moon will be a supermoon, when the moon is within 90% of perigee, or at one of the closest points to Earth.
This week’s supermoon is dubbed the “pink” moon because of its timing close to flower blooming season.
There is another supermoon coming this year on May 26. It is expected to appear bigger and shine brighter than the April moon, according to forecasters.
Take a few minutes to enjoy the moon tonight!
