Pink Moon 2019 Will Appear Tomorrow

This week, people around the world will begin their Easter celebrations, starting with Good Friday on April 19.

But it's not just Good Friday you have to look forward to this week - there's also a full Pink Moon.

If you love the colour pink, you might slightly disappointed to hear that despite its name, the Pink Moon won’t actually be that colour.

However, it’s still set to be a beautiful event that’s definitely worth keeping an eye out for!

Here’s everything you need to know about the Pink Moon, including how and when to see it.
This year, the Pink Moon will appear on Friday 19 April.

The full moon phase will begin at 12:12 BST, but should last through the night.

For your best chance of seeing it, try to head to an area with little light pollution, so the moon will look particularly bright in the night sky!

It occurs when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth as the sun, meaning its face is fully illuminated.
