#AceNewsReport – Apr.29: In North America, the April full moon is known as a “pink” Moon. According to folklore, it’s named after the first pink flower of the season:
Super ‘pink’ moon shines across Australia as photographers snap their best shots: A supermoon is a full Moon that is slightly closer to Earth than usual and occurs only a few times ever year & according to folklore is named after the first flower of the season for love x❤️
The Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon, the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, the Fish Moon, the Paschal Moon (for Eastern Christianity), Hanuman Jayanti, Bak Poya, and a Supermoon: Last one was on Monday night, April 26, 2021, appearing opposite the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 11:32 p.m. EDT. This will be the next day from the Atlantic Daylight Savings timezone eastward across Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia to the International Date Line. Most commercial calendars are based on Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) and will show this full Moon occurring on Tuesday, April 27, 2021. The Moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Sunday night through Wednesday morning check out here the history by NASA

Despite the name, the moon is not actually pink in colour.
Across Australia overnight, many photographers took advantage of favourable conditions to take some breath-taking shots of the astronomical event.
Clear skies over New South Wales meant residents were treated to plenty of opportunities to enjoy the supermoon.
Victorian residents did not miss out either, with the supermoon shining brightly over Warragul in Gippsland.
Some cloud cover over Brisbane gave photographers a chance to be creative with their snaps of the supermoon.
Residents in Tasmania also enjoyed the spectacle, with the supermoon reflecting off the water at Cornelian Bay.
Over in the west, keen stargazers took up their best vantage points to snap the supermoon as it rose over Western Australia.
The moon also put a show around the world as it was seen above the Stonehenge circle near Amesbury in England.
Supermoons are pretty common. There were three supermoons last year (including a pink supermoon).
The next super full Moon in May this year will not only be slightly closer than this one (both in timing and distance), it will also be a total lunar eclipse across Australia.
And unlike the pink supermoon, next month’s full moon really does change colour as it passes through Earth’s shadow.
The red tinge — also known as a “blood moon” — will be caused by sunlight that is filtered and refracted as it passes through our atmosphere.
