Some call this the Pink Moon because it marks the appearance of the wild ground phlox, one of the first spring flowers. Other names for this full moon include Sprouting Grass Moon, Fish Moon, Hare Moon, and Egg Moon. It is also known as the Paschal Moon because it is used to calculate the date for Easter. It is called a supermoon because it is near its closest approach to the Earth and may look slightly larger and brighter than usual.
