1 The Full Pink Moon on Mon Mar 25, 2013 8:19 pm


March 25, 2013

The Full Pink Moon

The March 2013 full moon will be out all night on March 26, shining in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden.

The moon turns precisely full on March 27 at 9:27 Universal Time
(4:27 a.m. CDT in the central U.S.). In North America, that means the
moon reaches the crest of full phase in the wee hours before sunrise on
March 27. But no matter where you live worldwide, watch for the
brilliant lamp of the full moon to light up the nighttime from dusk till
dawn. Look for the moon low in the east at dusk – at its highest point
in the sky around midnight – and low in the west before the sun comes

For the Northern Hemisphere, this is the first full moon of
springtime. We in this hemisphere call it the Pink Moon, to celebrate
the return of certain wild flowers.
Other names are Egg Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, or Easter Moon. In most
years, the Christian celebration of Easter falls on the first Sunday after
the first full moon of the Northern Hemisphere spring. So tonight’s
Easter Moon heralds the coming of Easter Sunday on March 31, 2013.

In the Southern Hemisphere, this is the first full moon of autumn.
It’s the Southern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon – the closest full moon to
the autumn equinox. The Harvest Moon ushers in the year’s
longest procession of moonlit nights, because the moon rises fairly soon
after sunset for several nights in a row. If you live at middle or far
southerly latitudes, look for the moon to shine from dusk till dawn for a
few to several days in succession.

The first full moon to follow the March equinox faithfully shines in
front of Virgo, the harvest goddess, to signal the change of seasons.
Watch the March full moon shine all night from sundown to sunup.
