Mother Nature will be gifting us all with a Super Pink Moon on the night of Tuesday, April 7.\nIt is said to be the largest and brightest full moon of all of 2020.\nGet details about the key hours below.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThis Tuesday night, April 7, when you go out for your walk where you respectfully remain 2 metres away from others due to social distancing recommendations, look up. Mother Nature has a nice surprise in store for you: a Super Pink Moon! But don't be fooled, unfortunately, tonight's moon will only be pink in its name and not in its colour.\nIts nickname comes from the fact that the month of April marks the appearance of the first perennials, some of which are pink and grow in the west.\nBut take solace in the fact that even though tonight's moon won't appear pink to you, it should be bigger and brighter than usual. That in itself is something to look forward to.\nEnough to literally and figuratively illuminate yet another night of confinement.\nThe Weather Network reassures us that "even when we are standing under the brightest lights of the downtown core of a city, where the urban light pollution washes out nearly everything else in the night sky, if the Moon is up, it will still be clearly visible."\nBut why a bigger, brighter moon?\nView this post on Instagram A spectacular super pink moon is set to appear in the night sky tonight - and it's going to be the biggest and best of 2020.
