Soon we will be able to see an unusual moon in our sky. The so-called giant moon will shine above our heads. What is a super full moon and when will we be able to observe it?
On Tuesday, June 14, the full moon will land, and after several hours the natural satellite of our planet will pass through its orbit point closest to Earth. This indicates an opportunity to see the so-called super full moon, or super moon.
Closer time, again
The full moon can be observed regularly about every 29.5 days and most people know this well. However, the Moon’s orbit around the Earth is not circular, but rather elliptical. The average distance is 384,000 km, but the difference between the farthest point (aphelion) and the nearest point (perihelion) is about 10 percent, which is quite a lot. As a result, the size of the lunar disk visible in the sky varies slightly, depending on the distance of this object from the Earth.
If there is a situation where the Moon – which is full – is near perigee in its orbit, it is very bright. This situation is sometimes called a super moon or a super moon. The Silver Globe can be up to 14 percent larger in the sky and up to 30 percent brighter than if it were at its height.
Super Full Moon. When will it appear?
The next opportunity to enjoy super fullness will be on the night of June 13/14 and June 14/15. The exact moment of the full moon is on June 14 at 1:52 p.m. The passage through the perihelion point of the orbit will take place on June 15, when it will be 1.23 am in Poland. The distance between the Earth and the Moon would then be 357438.4 kilometers.
When will the moon be shown? Silver Globe will rise on June 13 in December 20, it will fall at 3:39 am on June 14, then rise on June 14 at 3:39 am. 21.38 will be held on June 15 at 4.30
Full moon strawberry. Where did the name come from?
The full moon of June is called the strawberry moon. This is what the Native American tribes called, referring to the fact that June was the season for the strawberry harvest. Other names for the June full moon are either rose moon or hot moon.
