April Full Moon 2021: ‘Super Pink Moon’ rises Monday

7 min read


The full moon of April, called the Pink Moon, will occur in the eastern U.S. Monday night (April 26), a day before it reaches perigee, the closest point in its orbit to Earth — meaning that it will be a near-“supermoon,” appearing ever-so-slightly larger than usual. 

The moon becomes officially full on Monday at 11:32 p.m. EDT (0332 GMT on Tuesday, April 27), according to NASA. In New York City moonrise is at 7:24 p.m. local time on Monday, and moonset is Tuesday morning at 6:26 a.m.; the sun sets Tuesday at 7:49 p.m., according to Time and Date.
