Moon to be closer and brighter tonight

29 August 2015 16:55

A beautiful phenomenon, Supermoon, is waiting for amateur astronomers. The Moon will be full and it’ll approach the Earth at the maximum distance. Therefore, the Moon will be larger by 15% and 30% brighter.

The other two bright Supermoons are to be on September, 28 and October, 27.

Just a reminder: the Supermoon is an astronomical phenomenon that occurs when the Full Moon or New Moon coincides with the moment of Moon’s closest approach to the Earth.
