How to Watch Tonight’s Pink Super Moon
Look up to the sky tonight and you’ll see the first pink super moon of 2021!
It won’t really be coloured pink (that's just a name) but it will be a big and beautiful full moon shining bright.
It’s called a super moon because it’s closer to Earth than usual, which only happens a few times a year.
To see it, look to the east around sunset. Hopefully it will be a clear night.
But don't worry if you miss out on seeing it, you can try your luck next month. There’ll be another super moon on May 26, which will be a total lunar eclipse that will turn into a blood moon - and this time it really will have a red colour.
The pink super moon has already appeared in the northern hemisphere, check out these amazing images.
