Supermoons appear bigger and brighter because they are slightly closer to Earth.

April’s will be one of four supermoons in a row. Two more are expected in May and June.

Although it’s called a pink moon, it is not really a different color. The name comes from the pink early springtime blooms of the Phlox Subulata plant, which is native to eastern North America.
