TUCSON - Last night's full moon gave astronomy buffs and shutterbugs quite the sky show.

According to Space.com, this month's full moon is dubbed the "pink moon" after pink flowers called wild ground phlox. These flowers bloom in the early Spring and become widespread across portions of the United States and Canada.

While the moon wasn't pink in color, it certainly dazzled over the Old Pueblo. A huge thank you to our News 4 Tucson viewers for submitting their photos of the "pink moon" last night.
