Pink supermoon seen around the world

Here are just a few of the photos that Kelowna residents shared with us!

Moonrise will occur between 7 and 7:45 p.m. local time across most of the Lower 48 states.

Those who have been stargazing while on coronavirus night time curfew would have noticed that last night's moon was bigger and brighter than usual.

The moon will make this close pass to Earth at 2:08 p.m. The supermoon phenomenon occurs when the Moon is whole and reaches the point in its orbit at which it is closest to the earth. "Of this year's 13 lunar perigees, this is one of only two lunar perigees that comes closer than 221,830 miles (357,000 km)", as explained by Earthsky.

The waxing moon sets in the morning next to the pink neon angels, modeled on the little angels on Raphael's Sistine Madonna, on the Dresden Zwinger in Dresden, Germany, Tuesday. But the moon won't appear full until 10:35 p.m. EDT (0235 GMT), according to NASA.

Why is it called a 'Pink Moon, ' and what will happen to Earth?

The name of the Super Pink Moon has nothing to do with the color pink. "Sometimes it just knocks my socks off to see a full moon rising in the sky", she said.

The pink supermoon name is a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower and is first seen across North America as spring begins. The flower is commonly known as the creeping phlox or moss phlox - called "moss pink".

In Spain, where the virus is still raging and 743 people died in the last day to take the death toll to nearly 14,000, residents of the capital Madrid clapped for health workers from their balconies and windows beneath the super moon. New York City will also show a surge in ocean tides with 6.1 feet or 1.9 meters on Wednesday, April 8.
