El Camino de Santiago de Compostela – is also known as the Field of Stars from the word Compostela.  As pilgrims made their way under the stars of the Milky Way lighting the sky and guiding their way. For centuries pilgrims have ventured in nature away from their homelands to cross countries and oceans to experience their connection with God’s Divine Universe.  I am sure the planets and stars were reassuring friends along their journey lighting the way and adding to their experience.

In Galicia – we will experience the Pink Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse –

The PINK FULL MOON – This full Moon heralded the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox—one of the first spring flowers. It is also known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the Fish Moon.

No coloring: Eclipse is not visible at all

Note: Actual eclipse visibility depends on weather conditions and line of sight to the Moon.

Note that since it is a penumbral eclipse, it can be hard to see, as the moon will only be a bit fainter. (www.timeanddate.com)
