Skies will be clear to view the moon with peak illumination set for 11:33 p.m.

Now, before you head outside, don’t expect to see the moon a shade of pink. The moon will look like it always does:

The super “PINK” moon got its name from the early springtime blooms of the moss pink wildflower native to North America.
