Super Pink Moon April 2020 Date, Timings in India: April is the month when celestial events are lined up one after another starting with the Super Pink Moon tomorrow. While you are stuck at home during the lockdown to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, you can gaze upon it from your balcony or rooftop.

What is a Super Moon?

When a Full Moon takes place at perigee — the closest approach of Moon to the Earth’s orbit — it is known as the Super Full Moon or simply the Super Moon.

What is a Pink Moon?

According to the old Native American culture, the Full Moon in the April month is called the Pink Moon. The name Pink Moon comes from the pink flowers known as Wild Ground Phlox or Moss Phlox that bloom in spring in North America and cover the ground like a pink blanket around the time of April’s Full Moon.
