Tonight a pink full moon was expected to appear in the sky of Rome. The event occurs once a year when the moon reaches its nearest point to Earth, making it appear much larger than usual as well as being a peculiar shade of pink. The spectacle can be seen throughout the world, weather permitting. (Photo by Franco Origlia/Getty Images)
