This week the sky will light up with the so-called “pink moon”: the fourth full moon of the year. It is named for a North American native people who gave it that name to mark the beginning of spring. In that season grew a wild plant with deep pink flowers.

The event is scheduled for the night of Wednesday, April 5. However, in Córdoba it will reach its maximum splendor in the early hours of the following day, around 1.35 on Thursday.

It should be noted that the moon will not be pink but will have an intense white glow that can be seen with the naked eye: without the need to use binoculars or telescopes.
