Happy full moon PALS! Thursday, April 21 is the Full Moon. According to The Farmers Almanac April’s Full Moon, the Full Pink Moon, heralds the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers.
But wait! It has other names. The April Ancient Full Moon Names are Planter's Moon, Peony Moon, Flower Moon, Wildcat Moon, Growing Moon, Seed Moon, Awakening Moon & the Moon When Geese Return in Scattered Formation.
That's not all! This full moon is the smallest moon of the year and is accompanied by a show of meteor showers.
The Lyrid meteor shower peaks in the early morning hours of April 22, but can be visible anywhere from April 16-25. Most years, 10-20 meteors should be visible per hour. April’s bright, full moon could wash out most of the meteors from sight, except for the brightest ones.
