There is lots of talk about a ‘pink moon’  which led me to a homeschool topic of researching does the moon actually turn pink? and why is it referred to as such?

“Northern Native Americans call April’s full moon the pink moon after a species of early blooming wildflower. In other cultures, this moon is called the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.”

every month has it’s own name for the full moon occurring during that month and they are all “names based on the behavior of the plants, animals, or weather during that month.”

all the information quoted above was taken from National Geographic
