The whole world is watching the super moon to appear on Wednesday. This event is very special because tomorrow a super moon, a lunar eclipse and a red blood moon will be seen all at once. It is also known as the Flower Moon, which is the fifth full moon of this year. Scientists have also expressed the possibility of seeing Strawberry Moon in June. During this time, the Moon will appear much larger than its normal size. Which can be seen in many countries around the world including India.
So what does that mean? What is a super moon?
U.S. space agency NASA has said that in 2021, the Flower Moon will be closest to Earth than other full moons. Due to which it will appear as the closest and largest full moon of the year. While circling the earth, a situation arises when the moon is closest to the earth, that is, the shortest distance. During this time, its distance from the closest point in orbit is approximately 28,000 miles. This phenomenon is called a supermoon.
What does super mean?
As the moon approaches, she looks big and bright. By the way, it’s hard to find a difference between a super moon and a normal moon unless both sides of the position are looking sideways. What is a lunar eclipse A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon is completely or partially hidden in the shadow of the Earth. This phenomenon occurs during the full moon. Therefore, first try to understand the full moon.
Like the Earth, half of the moon is illuminated by sunlight. The position of the full moon is formed when the moon and the sun are in the opposite direction of the Earth. It makes the moon look like a saucer at night. The Moon, twice in each lunar orbit, is on the same horizontal plane as the Earth and the Sun. If this matches the full moon, then the sun, earth, and moon come in a straight line and the moon will pass through the shadow of the earth. This leads to a complete lunar eclipse.
