Full Pink Moon - April: This name came from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring. Other names for this month's celestial body include the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn. The moon doesn't actually appear pink in color.

Wonderful moon picture, LJ. We were driving east after a dinner out of town and enjoyed the same moon, too. It was like a huge copper penny. I'd wished I'd had my camera along. Your picture is wonderful!

I saw that moon too Laura!!! Never heard of the other names for it though - that's very interesting - thanks! And I hope Ami - loveydear - does start posting soon!!!

Some of the other Pink Moon shots have more features in the moon itself. I will have to ask PG for tips on photographing the moon. Thanks, snooker.

Thanks, morris. Lovey, did you get those moon shots tonight? Thank you very much, Dave and Sandy?

Great image Laura. The color cast around the moon showing a trace of the trees and clouds is awesome! Thanks

PS: We're looking forward to yours, too Lovey

loveydear

I, too, hope you'll post more of your Pink Moon pics!

Great shot, Laura! Show the other photos!
I agree with Laura, lovey. Start posting your pics. There is no reason to be shy!

Noticed the moon had no features but the pic has nice clouds, sky and trees that make it lovely.

laurajane

Lovey! You are not new! You put together a phenomenal amout of pieces a day! WOW. I think you should start posting your shots.

Thank you, snooker. I thought the moon itself was too bright in the picture. I have other pictures where the features of the moon are visible. In this shot, the moon is like a white flash. I chose this, however, because of the pinkish haze around it.

loveydear

I know, the weather man explained it last night but only gave the herb moss as the reason, I will eventually post pics, I'm still a newbie at this so it'll be soonish. P.S. Your pic has a semblance of pink around it!!! :-)

Super clear, lj. Nice job.

Lovey...just so you know...the Full Pink Moon is a name. It's not really pink. Will you post any of your shots?

Thank you Patti, aggie, lovey and Suzy!

The clouds were a nice addition to the full pink moon. What a wonderful shot!
