Amid the 21-day lockdown invoked to control the spread of the novel coronavirus, stargazers witnessed the Super Pink Moon on Tuesday night from their homes.

Traditionally, the full moon in the month of April is named after certain wildflowers, called pink moss, native to eastern North America, and hence the name ‘pink’ refers to the pink flower that blossoms during this time and not the colour of the moon.

Other names for this Moon include the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes the Fish Moon, as this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
