Full Pink Moon

The first lunar eclipse of the year was not visible to us, but we did have a clear view of the Full Moon this morning. Full Pink Moon, Full Egg Moon, Full Sprouting Grass Moon, or the Full Fish Moon, it gets its name from the herb moss pink or wild ground phlox, one of the first flowers of spring.

See the Farmer's Almanac for other moons throughout the year.
