Pink Supermoon will mild up the night time sky over Pittsburgh Monday – WPXI

PITTSBURGH – Monday night is going to be an amazing night for sky watchers as the moon will have a little more light and size tonight.

The pink full moon should be visible throughout our area with only a few clouds from time to time. The moon is named for the herb pink moss, which blooms in full bloom in the eastern United States in April.
