Another day, another new type of moon we're hearing about.

You may have seen the stories popping up on your timeline this week about a pink moon.

Yes a pink moon will be happening, Thursday (April 18th) and Friday (April 19th) night, however it's not going to be pink exactly.

According to AccuWeather "Every month’s full moon has a nickname that can often be traced back hundreds of years to the Native Americans or early Colonials from Europe." April's moon is called the Pink Moon because of " 'moss pink,' or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers" as explained by the Old Farmers Almanac.

It's looking like it will be a bit cloudy tonight and tomorrow night around the Hudson Valley. But if it clears up you will see a bright, yellow/orange/red full moon on Thursday night and the moon will be at 100%  4:12 a.m. PDT.

If the weather holds out for us, you can check out the Pink Moon at Burger Hill in Rhinebeck.
