    I've got to give this a bump...it is an awesome thing to see...take some binoculars with you for some close up views if you don't have a telescope lying around.

    i just went out and saw it. It's very bright but not huge like a harvest moon, and it doesn't look pink to me. Does it look pink where you are?

    No...got this from the net: "The name derives from a pink flower called phlox subulata that blooms in spring in North America."

    I'm just exited about it since it will be the largest this year. I'm one of those people that wanted to be an astronaut as a child...not quite sharp enough to have made the cut back in the day! :xf.smile:

    I guess we could call these corona skies -- nice and clear and one of the side benefits of the virus. Interestingly, corona is also an astronomy term meaning:

    "a white or colored circle or set of concentric circles of light seen around a luminous body, especially around the sun or moon"

    In case anyone's wondering, coronaskies.com was registered in 2010.
