A super pink moon is brightening the night skies over Ireland.

But there will not be any noticeable colour difference, as the name might suggest.

It will peak in the early hours of tomorrow morning, at 3.35am.

Despite its name, there is no colour change to the appearance of the lunar surface.

The super pink moon is a northern Native American reference to an early-blooming wildflower, which starts to pop up in the US and Canada at the beginning of spring.

The Old Farmer's Almanac also assigned the name to the appearance.

In some other cultures, it is known as the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.

As this will also be a super moon, people can expect it to look up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reaches its closest point to Earth, known as its perigee.

April's supermoon is the third of the year, following the worm moon on 9 March.

The next full moon is referred to as the Flower Moon, which takes place on 7 May.

Frances McCarthy, of Blackrock Castle Observatory in Cork, says the moon will remain spectacular throughout the night.

A full moon always occurs in the days leading up to Easter as Easter Sunday is the first Sunday after the full moon that occurs either on or after 21 March.

Easter can fall on 35 days - the earliest is 22 March and the latest is 25 April.
