IN PHOTOS: Pink Moon dazzles in the night sky

MANILA, Philippines – April's full moon, known as the Pink Moon, dazzled in the night sky on Good Friday, April 19. 

"Pink Moon" is a nickname derived from a wild ground phlox – "moss pink" flowers that bloom in early spring, according to The Old Farmer's Almanac.

Experts said that the color of the Pink Moon will depend on when observers will look at it. Here are some photos of the Pink Moon taken from different parts of the Philippines:
