According to Express UK, the April full moon isn't pink in colour.

Tribes such as the Algonquian traditionally kept track of time by naming the Moon's phases after particular events. Here is everything you need to know. In June, the full moon will be called Strawberry Moon.

The full moon is linked to the date of Easter, with Easter falling on the Sunday after the full moon that appears after the spring equinox. "Other names were the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and - among coastal tribes - the Full Fish Moon, when the shad come upstream to spawn".

The beginning of 2019 treated us to an incredible Super Blood Moon with a lunar eclipse in our skies.

The moon will have a rather lovely hue tomorrow night.
