Tonight's 'pink moon' isn't actually pink. Here's what you should expect.


The night sky has been home to a "pink moon" that hits peak visibility tonight. But it's not actually pink.

The so-called pink moon, the last full moon before Easter Sunday, hit peak visibility at 2:08 a.m. Eastern time Tuesday, but will still be visible through April 12, USA Today reports. 

The name comes from a Native American tradition, according to It's also the full moon that rises when the spring flower called moss pink or phlox tends to bloom. 

But as you can see, it doesn't exactly change the color.

This is a pretty good indicator of what not to expect.

But the views are still pretty impressive.
