A "Pink Moon" captivated the people of Mendoza on Good Friday


On Friday night, the main protagonist was the so-called "Luna Rosa", the first full moon after the autumnal equinox.

The name of Luna Rosa dates back to the time of the Native Americans. They named it the fourth full moon of the year, according to information collected in the Old Farmer's Almanac.

This moon meant the appearance of "pink moss" or the phlox of the wild land in the territory. The phenomenon was also known as the "Moon of the eggs" for the Easter season in which it happened, the "Moon of the fish" or the "Budding of the Moon of the Grass". however, this denomination is not because of the color that the moon adopts, but it is a scientific name.

In many parts of the world and the country, this beautiful phenomenon has been observed. In Mendoza, the appearance of this "Pink Moon" attracted the attention of many people of Mendoza, but few managed to capture this spectacular phenomenon.
