If you're expecting the moon to be as pink as girlie baby booties, then you're going to be disappointed, the April Moon is pink in name only.

I've actually seen some wrongheaded memes and confusion over this moon before.  The Pink Moon has to do more with the color of stuff that bloomed this time of year around the area of the people who nicknamed it.  Interestingly enough it's also known as the Egg Moon, so I could be just as likely to be explaining that it's still going to be round and not egg shaped.

The Full Pink Moon actually happened in the morning hours on Tuesday, but you should be able to get another peek at it tonight if the rain clouds don't interfere.
