Beware of The Full Moon

Tonight, April 11, 2017 will see a full moon. It will be its fullest around 2 a.m but dont worry if you will not be up at that time if you look up at any time you will see a full moon. April's full moon is referred to as the pink moon. This does not mean that you should expect it to look pink. It is named after pink flowers that grow wild and bloom in early spring. The phlox can be found around the United States and Canada

The Earth will see a full moon every 29.5 days. The side of the moon that faces the Earth is fully illuminated. The phases of the moon occur because we see it from different views as it revolves around the Earth. The moon is 90 degrees to the left or right of the line that connects the earth and sun then it is half lit up that results in a quarter moon and is 1/4 of the way around the orbit.
