MLive had a really interesting article where they are talking about a Pink Moon. something I have never heard of before.  According to the article the full moon in April got its name from Native Americans because the moon typically coincided with  the bloom of pink flowers.  They would typically name the various moons all through the year as a way for them to keep track of time and also the seasons.

So, the name Pink Moon, would suggest, of course, a pink moon but that is not the case.  the April moon also goes by names like the Egg Moon, and Fish Moon because of birds laying eggs and fish begin to migrate this time of year.

Regardless the Pink Moon will be at its peak around 2am tomorrow, and should remain visible for a couple of nights.
