Wonderful full moon last night. I missed its entry on the horizon, but was still impressed once it was into the sky. And it shone on my face when I got in bed to help in my lifelong quest of obtaining a moonburn.
One of our calendars noted that this is the Pink Moon and this is what the Farmers’ Almanac has to say:
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.
