The first full moon of spring will shine this weekend, but don’t let its name fool you.

April’s full moon is known as the pink moon - named for the pink wildflowers

that bloom in early spring in eastern North America, according to the Farmer’s Almanac.

It's also linked to several major religious holidays, including Easter.

The pink moon will light up by 3 p.m. Eastern Saturday, but you won’t be able to see it until after sunset.

Sunset times depend on where you live; check your local forecast for sunset times.

NASA says the moon will appear full for three days, from early Friday morning through early Monday morning.

It won’t be a supermoon like it was for the past two years.

Supermoons happen when the moon is full and its orbit is closest to Earth,

making the moon appear slightly larger and more vivid.
