Downtown Full Moon

Downtown Full Moon

This is the April Full Moon setting over downtown Albuquerque.

The Full Moon in April is called the Full Pink Moon. They call it this because of the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest flowers of the spring.

They also call it the Full Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg Moon.
