Pink Moon 2021 in pictures: Breathtaking images reveal the Pink Supermoon around the globe

Here in the UK, the Pink Moon was photographed rising over the neolithic monument of Stonehenge in Wiltshire.

The picture was snapped early on Tuesday as the Moon was already heading towards the horizon to set for the day.

The planet’s dusty atmosphere have the Full Moon a reddish-pinkish hue, although the Moon itself did not turn pink at any point last night.

Instead, the Pink Moon’s name is attributed to Native American time-keeping traditions and a pink wildflower that blossoms around this time of the year.

The Pink Moon was also photographed by astrophysicist Gianluca Masi of the Virtual Telescope Project in Italy.
