A Hefty ‘Pink’ Super Moon Will Take To The Evening Sky At Dusk Tonight

A pink moon in the night sky.

It’s time to take a big ol’ geeze into the evening sky, because tonight, a pink supermoon will be the star of the show.

It’s a phenomenon that’ll be gracing up above just twice this year, and contrary to what its name suggests, the pink supermoon isn’t actually pink. Instead, it shares the timing of when a flower known as the pink flox blooms. What stargazers can expect however is a moon that’s far bigger and far brighter than usual.

For the pragmatic thinkers out there, a super moon occurs when the moon is orbiting closest to us. For the astrological types, however, super moons apparently have a greater gravitational pull than regular old full moons, and that loosely equates to heightened emotions.

Regardless of if you’re in it for all the feels, or if you just want to catch a glimpse of that big shiny thing in the sky, these are the best times to look up across the country from this evening until tomorrow morning:

Melbourne: 5:50pm to 8:00am
Sydney: 5:30pm to 7:15am
Brisbane: 5:30pm to 7:00am
Perth: 6:00pm to 7:45am
