Watch for the pink full moon on Thursday…just don’t be surprised when you don’t see pink. According to the Farmers’ Almanac, the pink full moon gets its name from the herb moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the earliest widespread spring flowers to bloom.

There will also be a lunar eclipse on Thursday, but it won’t be visible in North America, Space.com says, because the eclipse will occur when the moon is still below the horizon there.
