Yes, tonight is Pink Supermoon night (or pick April 16, 2022 if you read this past then). Pick a location … pick a plane (or a boat!) and set time at dusk (near local moonrise time) … face east and enjoy the show! Quite an impressive moon to see in VR. Make sure you have ‘clear skies’ … or thin wispy clouds … set in weather. Send your screen shots!
Yes it looks very nice but that is not pink, its orange more like a blood moon.
You’d know a blood moon if you saw it. Deeper red … cuz the moon’s in the full earth shadow (umbra) … this one has it in a half shadow (penumbra).
That depends on its position in the sky and how far through the eclipse it is. As you can see in this image a blood moon goes through an orange phase to deeper orange/red:-
Yes but a pink moon is never a deeper red since its not a lunar eclipse.
I see, interesting, we live and learn.
I saw it by accident. I was wondering why the contrast looked so nice.
