Keep your eyes peeled at the skies of Liverpool tonight as there will be a rare full moon showing its face.

On the night of Tuesday, April 11 , the pink moon be fully visible but don鈥檛 be fooled by the name.

The Pink Moon isn鈥檛 actually coloured at all - the moon鈥檚 name comes from the pink flowers that spring around this time of year.

It will look its most impressive when the skies are darkest in the middle of the night.
