The lunar surface of the moon will appear 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than some past full moons, making it the brightest and most impressive full moon of 2021 so far.
The name of April’s full moon is after pink flowers known as phlox, which bloom in the springtime - however, the colour of the moon may not be noticeably pink.
However, at its peak at 4.31am BST on 27 April, light reflected off the moon is most likely to be distorted by the atmosphere or air pollution and may contribute to a pinkish hue.
Photographs of the stunning lunar event on Monday show the exceptionally bright moon casting its light over Britain’s monuments and beauty spots.
The moon is also visible in clear skies over France and Spain, although it appears slightly murky due to clouds over Italy.
It will rise in the east just before sunset and set in the west around sunrise for the next two nights.
