'Pink moon' to light up the skies starting this week

FOX NEWS - Stargazers who step outside tonight will likely get to see the fabled "pink moon" of April, but unfortunately, unless viewed through tinted glasses, it won't be pink.

The pink moon is the name for April's full moon, earning its nickname from a pink flower called wild ground flox, NASA explained in a statement it released.

The April full moon has other names, too, like fish moon, grass moon, and egg moon.

The Pink Moon as seen from the Earth is fully illuminated when the Earth, moon, and Sun are lined up with the Earth in between the two.
