So I just learnt there’s this actual thing called the Super Pink Moon, the moon of spring. But “that's not a reference to its actual color. NASA notes it's "a name that comes from the herb moss pink native to the eastern US, and one of the earliest widespread flowers of spring."

Jupiter's Moon IO: Jupiter's fifth moon, Io, is the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Io's surface temperature averages about minus 202 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 130 Celsius), resulting in the formation of sulfur dioxide snowfields. But Io's volcanoes can reach 3,000 F (1,649 C). Io is often referred to as a celestial body of fire and ice. (source)
