A Full Pink Supermoon Will Rise Over Canada Soon & Here's When You Can See It

There will be one next month as well!

It's almost time for the full pink supermoon in 2021 and here's how you can see it as it rises over Canada.

If skies are clear where you are, you'll be able to spot Earth's natural satellite after sunset on April 26 and watch it rise as it reaches its peak illumination at around 11:33 p.m. ET that night.

There won't actually be a pink hue to the moon but it will look golden when it rises above the horizon and if you want the best views, find an open area so you can watch its entire journey through the sky.

Supermoons can look 14% larger and 30% brighter than normal because the orb is at its closest point to Earth.

If you love space, there will be another supermoon in May that coincides with a total lunar eclipse and even more amazing celestial events throughout the spring season that you can see.
