Lunar-tics are in for a rare Easter treat as a Pink Moon is set to light up the sky Good Friday night.
Moongazers can best view the annual phenomenon after dusk as the moon will rise at 6.04pm tonight.
Kings Park, Matilda Bay and Rottnest Island are good places to take in the rising moon and to take nightscape photos, though cloud cover may hinder the view.
The moon will appear larger than usual because it will be three days past perigee, the point at which it orbits closest to Earth, meaning it will almost be a supermoon.
Despite its name, the Pink Moon was not named after its colour and may appear in a number of hues.
Rather Northern Native Americans believed the Pink Moon to herald the appearance of a species of early-blooming pink spring flowers.
For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere feeling the autumn chill set in, perhaps one of the moons other names such as the Egg, or indeed the Fish Moon may be more fitting, particularly given the Easter period.
Interestingly, many cultures believe the full moons gravitational pull on a womans amniotic fluids increases the chances of her going into labour if she is close to full term.
The Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince George on a full moon.
With the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle rumoured to be due any day, its possible the Pink Moon could herald her own early blooming.
