The Easter Moon will have a completely pink look once it happens this Holy Week. It got its name since it happens every April each year.

The Easter Moon or Pink Moon is not a solar or lunar eclipse. It is a full moon that will be appearing on Saturday, Apr. 16, which is the “First Day of Passover.”
Aside from the two mentioned names, it also has other titles, such as the Egg Moon and the Hunter moon. But, the Easter Moon is the most popular one.

On the other hand, NASA said that the pink color of the full moon might start forming on Friday, Apr. 15.
“The next full moon will be early Friday morning, March 18, appearing opposite the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 3:18 a.m. EDT,” said the international space union via its official blog post.
The Pink Moon is expected to be seen in North America when it comes to place. But, people in other parts of the globe may also see it.
How To Take Photo of Easter Moon?
Watching the upcoming Easter Moon with your naked eyes is quite exciting. But, it will also be fun if you can capture its image.
If you don’t have a DSLR or a video cam, you can just grab your phone and take photos of the Pink Moon. But, there are some instances when the captured images are blurry or not pleasing to the eye.
Now, here are some tips you can do to capture Instagrammable images of the Easter Moon using your handset:
- Securing a tripod or anything that can hold your smartphone is one of the most important things when taking photos of the moon.
- You need to take advantage of your manual camera feature. Once you use this mode, you must adjust the ISO, shutter speed, aperture, and other features.
- If your device offers a camera shake feature, use this to reduce the vibrations you make when taking photos of the moon in a handheld method.
- Since the time of the Easter Moon is still dark, you need to make sure that your shutter speed is around three to five seconds per frame. This will allow your device to take as much light as it can, giving you that HD look.
On Mar. 3, it was announced that the NASA Artemis I Moon mission will bring people’s names to the Moon.
Meanwhile, a photo of the moon photobombing the Sun went viral back in 2020.
