Super Pink Moon - April 26th, 2021 (Mark Nicol)

April’s famed supermoon moon lit up skies across Vancouver Island Monday night, made all the much brighter and more spectacular because of the crystal-clear conditions we were gifted with.

This particular moon is dubbed the ‘pink moon’, in reference to pink wildflowers that sprout across the globe during this time of year – though it’s not actually pink itself, and has more of a golden hue.
