Pink Moon

The full moon of April is called a Pink Moon, not because it turns pink, rather it’s named after the pinkish flowers of ground phlox, which are among the earliest flowers of spring.

It does take on a golden hue, hanging low in the sky before setting.

(Morning of April 20, just before sunrise,  province of Laguna in the Philippines.)
