Trust me, I know interrupted sleep is the worst but youre not going to want to miss this.

Before you hunker down and set every alarm you own for the Pink Moons big debut, you should probably know a tiny bit more about the phenomenon.

Based off the moons name, its easy to assume youre going to see a gigantic, pink, bubble-gum sphere floating in the middle of the night sky.

Im here to explode your bubble and let you know the Pink Moon isnt actually pink.

Dont get too bummed out yet, though.

Its a full moon and its wholly worth admiring. Plus, if youre into crystal healing, you can leave your crystals outside for a moonbath.

Anyway, this particular full moon was named the Pink Moon afterpink flowers calledwild ground phlox( moss pink herbs) that grow rapidly in the springtime.

Native Americansgave it the name and often used full moon to keep track of time throughout the year.

Other names for the Pink Moon in other parts of the world includeSprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon and the Fish Moon.

So, sadly, the moon wont be pink. Itll likely look something like this 😛 TAGEND

Just because its not pink doesnt entail it doesnt deserve your kudo, though.

In fact, the Pink Moon is super special and marks important festivities and vacations throughout the world, such as Easter and the spring equinox.

If you hope to wake up in the middle of the night to catch a glimpse of the Pink Moon, set your alarms for 2:08 am EDT( 6:08 GMT ).

Itll be worth it, I promise!
