Over the next two nights, we will have the opportunity to observe an extraordinary full moon. A so-called giant moon will appear in the sky. What is this phenomenon?

On Tuesday, our natural satellite will enter the full moon phase. After several hours, it will pass through the point of its orbit closest to Earth. This combination means that on the next night and at night from Tuesday to Wednesday, we will be able to observe the so-called supermoon.

Every 29.5 days

A full moon occurs approximately once every 29.5 days. However, a normal satellite’s orbit 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 10 percent. This means that the face of the moon in the sky appears larger or smaller depending on the distance of the object from the Earth.

If the full moon is also close to the perihelion point in its orbit, then it shines very brightly. This situation is sometimes called a super moon or a super moon. The Silver Globe can then be up to 14 percent larger to an observer and shine up to 30 percent more than if it were in its prime.

Super Full Moon. When will it appear?

The exact moment of the full moon on June 14 will occur at 1:52 pm, while the passage through the perihelion point on June 15 will occur at 1.23. The distance between the Earth and the Moon would then be 357438.4 kilometers. However, the moon’s disk will appear larger than usual for two nights.

When will it be possible to see the moon at this extraordinary full moon? The time of sunrise in the Silver Globe was June 13 12/20, but it was still difficult to see the celestial body at this time due to sunlight (the sun sets in our time zone at 8:58 PM that day). The Earth’s natural satellite will fall on June 14 at 3:39 am, and 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?
