He wrote: “The April 2021 ‘Pink’ supermoon descending in the north west of Singapore this morning before the sunrise in the east. The moon was 99.9% full and was about 357,615 km (222,212 miles) away from Earth. The moon was really super huge when it was seen in contrast with the high rise public housing standing at 30 stories high. The sky was favorable throughout the night, and the moon was clearly visible from the rise to the setting.” Thank you, Kannan A!

View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Abhijit Patil in Salem, Massachusetts, captured this photo of the moon on April 26, 2021. He wrote: “The first supermoon of 2021 in a series of supermoons coming up in the months to follow. It is not called a pink supermoon because it looks pink. It’s called so because of wild grown phlox, which is an early-blooming pink-colored flower.” Thank you, Abhijit!
View at EarthSky Community Photos. | Matt Lantz in Dallas, Texas, captured this photo of the moon on April 26, 2021. He wrote: “I was convinced we weren’t going to be able to see the supermoon rise last night here in Dallas because it was so cloudy, but man was I wrong! I’m so glad I decided to go out anyway and set up for it just hoping that it might appear. That’s probably the biggest thing I’m learning about photography lately: Never give up on a shot; you can’t take a picture if you’re not out there.” Thank you, Matt!
