April Full Moon Belies its Name

The April full moon, captured in an exquisite photo by Caryl Fox, is known as the pink moon.  Given its name as a nod to the bountiful array of flowers which spring delivers, it actually appears as a golden orb.  It is also recognized as the Paschal full moon since it is the first full moon after the equinox.  Easter is celebrated the first Sunday after this full moon.
