News pages and accounts on social media have claimed “the moon will appear in a pink color next Saturday, in an astronomical phenomenon” and accompanied pictures of the moon in a pink color that were used as evidence of the validity of this claim.
A Facebook page called (ليبيا فقط) published the photos on April 13, 2022, accompanied by a claim that it is "a rare astronomical phenomenon in which we will see the full pink moon."
The claim circulated widely after dozens of pages and accounts contributed to its publication. You can see many of them in the sources table at the end of the article.
Verify-ٍSy team conducted a research to verify the claim that “the moon will appear pink in the coming days”, and it turned out that the claim was incorrect.
The results of the research showed that the moon will be in a full moon phase on Friday, Saturday and Sunday corresponding to 15-16-17 of this April, and the moon will appear naturally like any full moon we see during the year, and its color will not change to pink and will remain as we know it, and there is no astronomical phenomenon causes the moon to appear pink, similar to the photos accompanying the claim.
“Pink Moon” is only a name for the full moon that comes in April, and is repeated on the same date annually. It is a traditional local American designation, associated with the spring season, where some pink flowers and algae -like (Phlox)- begin to appear in this period of the year.
