New Jersey Might See a Different Colored Moon This Week
New Jersey might be seeing a 'Pink Moon' Thursday night into Friday morning, say what?
Yeah, I'm sorry it was too good to be true. I got really excited when I saw this on NJ.com, but turns out there's no such thing as a 'pink moon!' Sigh.
A 'Pink Moon' is actually just a nickname for the April full moon, symbolizing the start of spring and pink-colored flowers blooming this time of year. I'll admit, that's my favorite start of spring too, but a pink moon would've been cool to see too!
BUT, you can still expect to see a full moon glowing in the night sky this Friday, April 22 which is always a beautiful sight.
NJ.com also says that unfortunately for astronomy lovers, the Lyrid meteor shower may be dimmed by the full moon's light.
Still, pretty cool!
