New Moon from Tybee beach on April 29, 2018. Known as the Pink Moon. Not so pink but it was a very clear night. I'm not sure the moon is ever actually pink. Derives this name as well as other names from the Native American tribes based on local events. The little pink flowers called the Wild Ground Phlox that appear in the meadows at this time of year. It is also referred to by other names paying homage to the changing of the season like Spouting Grass Moon, Egg Moon, and Fish Moon. The Farmer’s Almanac suggest that the time after the full “Pink Moon” and the last quarter of the moon is the best time to kill weeds, trim and prune bushes and plants, mow your lawn, chop timber, and start planting your garden. Enjoy.
