Steveston resident Karl Maier got a nice surprise when he popped out to his car Monday night

Richmond News reader Karl Maier popped out to his car in Steveston on Monday night to fetch something and was “greeted” by the spectacular spring “supermoon.”

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the full moon on April 26 is traditionally called the pink moon, because it corresponds with early springtime blooms of a certain, pink wildflower native to eastern North America - phlox subulata.

It's the first of two supermoons this year, the second rising on May 26.
