You will want to get out and see the moon on Tuesday night. This will be the biggest the moon will look all year.

We will have a Full Moon on April 7 at 9:35 p.m. CDT, at which time the Moon will be near to its perigee — or the point in its orbit that it is closest to Earth. This proximity will provide the largest appearance of the Moon for the whole year, commonly called a supermoon.

In North America, we often call the April full moon the Pink Moon, Grass Moon or Egg Moon. This will appear 7% bigger than an average full moon.

The forecast does look a little dicey for moon viewing. We will most likely have overcast conditions heading into the evening with a few showers in the area. It’s possible skies will clear some heading into the overnight hours.

Hope for the best with the clouds and try to get out and take a look!
