Dubbed the "pink supermoon," this is the night when the moon appears brighter and bigger than usual (Read: Absolutely glorious) thanks to its nearer-than-usual distance to the little blue dot (Read: Us). Don't be misled by the name. Astrologers took their cue from the Native Americans who used the moon to track the seasons. This "pink" supermoon happens after the Spring equinox and signals the start of a new season—and more significantly in this context, the blooming of the moss pink flower (Phlox subulata).
