The rising of the full Moon over Brookings Hall Fri., April 6, was glorious. The April full Moon is known as the Pink Moon, a name that comes from the herb moss pink, also known as wild ground phlox, which is one of our earliest widespread flowers of spring. Other names for the April full Moon are the Sprouting Grass Moon and the Egg Moon. (See the Far Side Illuminates Mysteries of the Moon feature to learn about ongoing research regarding the Moon’s far side.)
