The full moon on Wednesday, April 20, will not be green, despite several hoax reports making their way through social media.
Maybe you noticed the incorrect day and date relationship in that first sentence. It's not a mistake. In 2016, when we first debunked the green-moon social-media hoax, April 20 was a Wednesday.
This year, April 20 is a Friday. That's different, but just as in 2016, there will not be a green moon on April 20, 2018.
Also, as in 2016, those social-media sharers have missed the fact that the full moon this month is April 30, a Monday.
Bottom line: No green full moon on April 20, this year or anywhere.
