Last night, the moon was shimmery and magical, shining at 99% full brilliance.

But tonight is the night that our sky's nightlight will fully shine. Last night's moon sparked conversations about the eagerly-awaited April Full Moon. Well, the wait is over! Prepare to be dazzled as the moon fills its belly and puts on one heck of a show.

Our resident photographer here in Central Maine snapped a brilliant photo of last night's moon. We all can't wait to see what Dave Dostie captures of tonight's full moon.

Tonight's full moon is called the April moon. It's called the Pink Moon, but contrary to the name, the Pink Moon isn't named for the color.  Instead, it comes from the early bloom of spring and certain wildflowers, as per The Old Farmer's Almanac. 

According to NASA, it will reach its peak 100% fullness at 7:49pm.

Now, let's take a look at the weather to see if we will actually be able to witness this. We've got good news: clear skies are reported for this evening throughout most of the state, according to the Weather Channel.

Now, for those of you who are like me and indulge in the spiritual interpretation of nature, let's take a look at what tonight's Pink Full Moon means for our third eyes.

According to Marca, 

This Pink Moon is an opportune moment to reconnect with the natural world, allow for an energetic reset, and see how everything else falls into place.

I hoping you all enjoy what nature is going to give us this evening. If you love to take photos of the moon, share with us!
