What a week it has been, we started off with a meteor shower and we’ll end it with a full supermoon!
Look up late Wednesday night into early Thursday morning for a peek at the last full supermoon of 2020.
The Flower Moon as it’s called will become 100% full at 6:45 AM EDT Thursday morning and will appear bigger, brighter and a little closer than your normal full moon. This will be the last of a series of three full supermoons of the year.
A super moon is when a new or full moon coincides with perigee or its closest point to Earth during its orbit. Any moon that comes within 230,000 miles or less from Earth will be labeled a supermoon.
The moon on May 7th will be the third closest, brightest and biggest of the year coming at nearly 224,429 miles from Earth.
We’ll see a micro full moon, when a full moon occurs around apogee or the farthest point from Earth on October 31st 2020 but the next full supermoon won’t happen until 2021
