Pink Super Moon 2020: At midnight on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, the moon will appear larger and brighter than usual. This is because the super moon in the intervening night of April 7 and 8 will be the second and last super pink moon in 2020. This event is also called Grass Moon or Egg Moon in some places.
During a super moon, the moon approaches its perigree. On Tuesday and Wednesday nights, the moon is only 221,918 miles from the earth. According to NASA data, the average lunar distance from the Earth is 2,38,355 miles. On March 24, the moon was 2,52,700 miles from the earth.
The super pink moon will be a true manifestation of Mother Nature, because it has discovered that Earth ’s natural satellites will appear huge. When the full moon coincides with the moon in orbit closest to Earth, a super moon occurs.
Usually, the super moon is about 6% and 7% larger than the normal full moon, and the bright moon is 16% more. In addition, there are opportunities for comets to pass by.
Due to the elliptical orbit of the earth, the full moon occurs at different distances from our planet.
Depending on the geographic location, the Super Moon will rise one hour after the sun sets on April 7. The moon will be seen throughout the night. In this event, the brightest star in the constellation will be “Virgo”.
The next super pink moon will occur on April 26, 2021, and the next super moon will be observed on May 7.
On Tuesday night, most parts of the world will not be overcast, this is a good opportunity to watch the moon.
