Hey Space Placers!
UPDATED: MOON & JUPITER AT BIG MEADOW SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK 4/29/18
Full Moon is tonight 4/29/18 and is the Pink Full Moon. No, it won't be pink in color.......it is named for the time of year when the flowers are in bloom.Two other names for the Full Moon in April are Grass Full Moon and Egg Full Moon.....as you can see all Spring related.
The Full Moon will be at precisely 8:58 p.m. EDT.
The Moon will have a guest these next two nights as bright Jupiter will be keeping the Moon company throughout the night. Jupiter will be closer to the Moon on the last night of April into the 1st morning of May.
Get out tonight and enjoy the view. Oh, and don't forget to see brilliant Venus in the West as it gets dark. The beautiful planet is now about as high as it will get in our sky each night for Spring and Summer.
