The supermoon, also know as the pink moon, happens when the moon is at its closest to Earth. It’s called the pink moon because certain pink flowers bloom at the same time the supermoon happens.

There’s a string of supermoons this spring. So if you miss the upcoming lunar show, catch the next one May 7.
