Look up to the sky tonight and you’ll see the first pink super moon of 2021!
It won’t really be coloured pink (that's just a name) but it will be a big and beautiful full moon shining bright.
It’s called a super moon because it’s closer to Earth than usual, which only happens a few times a year.
To see it, look to the east around sunset. Hopefully it will be a clear night.
But don't worry if you miss out on seeing it, you can try your luck next month. There’ll be another super moon on May 26, which will be a total lunar eclipse that will turn into a blood moon - and this time it really will have a red colour.
The pink super moon has already appeared in the northern hemisphere, check out these amazing images.
