Full 'Pink Moon' Tonight, April 25, 2013

Will the 'Blood Moon' Lunar Eclipse in April 2014 be a Pink Moon?

 


CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida -- There will be a Full Moon tonight beginning with a moonrise  over the Atlantic Ocean on Florida's east coast at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.  The Moon will be 99.8% full before it sets at 1:41 a.m. the following Friday morning.


Although the total Full Moon on Thursday night appears golden to U.S. residents when it rises as the news video below shows, a partial eclipse will create the effect of a pink moon on the other side of the globe tonight.

For those planning a stroll along the beach to watch the Full Moon, the Full Moon brings along with it a 4-foot high tide that will occur around 8:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, with a few minutes of variation depending on your exact location.
