Expect a full pink moon to shine this entire weekend

April's full moon will illuminate the sky this entire weekend, and while it's called the pink moon, it's not actually that color.

The pink moon will appear full from early Friday to Monday morning, according to NASA

It will be at its peak fullness on Saturday, April 16, at 2:55 p.m. ET.

The plant is commonly known as creeping phlox, moss phlox or mountain phlox.

The pink moon is associated with the early spring arrival of creeping phlox (Phlox subulata)
