The super moon in April 2020

Even if the color of this super moon on April 8, 2020 at 9:20 p.m. seems rather orange, it is still called the Pink Moon. This label obviously has nothing to do with its color. The terms actually arose from the rituals of the Native Americans, who saw the full moon in April in connection with the pink blooming of the flame flowers (phlox) made from the pearweed family (Polemoniaceae). Thus the super moon became the messenger of the approaching spring.
