Pink Moon and My Angel Remington Watches Over Me

Hi my pals, I am doing this joyfully in honor of Remington.

 Pink Moon in April

The April full moon is called the Pink Moon, as named by the Native Americans, and it's coming to the horizons this week. But if you expect to see the moon with a pinkish hue, think again!

On Thursday (April 25, 2013), there will be a full moon on the night of a lunar eclipse. The pink full moon Thursday night will be visible the best to those living in Europe, Africa, and most of Asia, reports The Weather Channel. For those living in North America, the eclipse will not be simple since the full moon takes place in the afternoon when the moon will be under the horizon.

"Beginning at 2:04 p.m., EDT, the moon begins to meet the Earth's shadow; a little over two hours later it arrives under the middle of that shadow," writes The Weather Channel. "By then the moon will have just risen and will be visible low to the east-southeast horizon as seen from Ireland, and will be setting over south-central Japan in the morning hours of Friday, April 26."

Wondering when the ideal time to watch it is? According to Space.com, the pink full moon will be the deepest around 4 p.m., EDT, and will be gone by 5 p.m., EDT.
As for why the moon is given the nickname "pink moon," the National Geographic explains it was named after wildflower.
"Northern Native Americans call April's full moon the pink moon after a species of early blooming wildflower," reports the National Geographic. What's more, other cultures have other names for the full moon in April, including: the sprouting grass moon, the egg moon, and the fish moon.

Mommy and I got a package today in the mail and we were super excited! Mommies birthday is Saturday, so I thought it might be for her.

I will let the gift speak for itself.

My sweet Remington always told me "I love you to the moon and back", he must have had this beautiful music box made for me. It was so nice of Beth to send it to us. When you open it, the song plays "My Girl".

I still miss Remington every day, but this was a wonderful surprise for both Mommy and me. It makes me so happy thinking of him every time I open it and listen to our song. Remington brought such joy and now I have a special reminder.

Thank you Beth and thank you Sweet Angel Remington. I will always love you, you and no other.

 Run free and be happy!!

Remington would be so proud of your RRC studies and letting us all know about the moon. Like others we can't help think of him when we look up and see that beautiful moon. And that is a very beautiful gift.

Hello Sasha,

The moon now has more meaning for us as we think of you and Remington whenever we look up the night sky.

Aw Sasha, that was a wonderful post. Thanks for all the info on the Pink Moon. Remington would be so pleased to know you presented this information.

We still miss him so much. Each full moon we listen for his howl. We will never look at a full moon again without thinking of Rem.

That was so very sweet of Beth to send you the present she found. We know Rem picked it out just for you.

Kitty Kisses,
