Sky enthusiasts are in for another special treat this August! The most significant lunar phenomenon of the year is set to occur for the second time this month, commonly known as the super blue moon. Depending on your location, you’ll have the opportunity to observe the super blue moon either on August 30th or 31st.
What is a supermoon?
A supermoon is when the Moon looks bigger and brighter in the sky than usual. It happens because the Moon comes closer to Earth. It’s like a special Moon that shines extra bright! The Moon’s orbit around Earth is not a perfect circle but slightly oval. This makes it closer (perigee) and farther (apogee) at different times. When it’s closest, we see the supermoon.
When will the supermoon occur?
The first supermoon of the month occurred on August 1 at 2.32 pm EDT (12.02 am IST on August 2). The second supermoon, also known as a blue moon, will appear on August 30 at 9.36 pm ET (7.06 am IST on August 31). The phrase ‘blue moon’ refers to the occurrence of two full moons in the same calendar month.
How to watch a supermoon?
To enjoy these celestial events, clear skies are a must. Binoculars or telescopes can make it even better, showing lunar maria and rays from craters.
August’s full moon is called the sturgeon moon, named after the fish once abundant in the Great Lakes. This year, it will be an exceptional supermoon, illuminating the night sky.
