A beautiful "Pink Moon" took over the Metro Vancouver skies last night (PHOTOS)

Apr 8 2020, 10:01 am

Did you get a glimpse of the sky in Vancouver last night? If you did, maybe you were able to see the spectacular pink supermoon shine over the city.

A supermoon means it’ll be at its closest to Earth in its orbit, making it appear a litter brighter and larger than usual — and last night, it was beautiful.

According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the name comes from the Native American practice of giving titles to full moons. In April, the first sightings of herb moss pink and wild ground phlox, are signs of the earliest widespread flowers of the spring.

If you didn’t happen to see it, or get a good picture, people across Metro Vancouver captured it for you, so enjoy the incredible pictures below:

Things might be hard right now, but sometimes looking out into the universe can help remind us how small we are, and how vast and beautiful our world can be.
