Pink Supermoon lights up night sky over Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH — Monday night is going to be an amazing night for sky gazers as the moon will have a little extra flare and size tonight.

The pink full moon should be visible across our entire area with only a few clouds from time to time. The moon is named after the herb, pink moss which blooms fully in the eastern United States during April.
