Super Pink Moon 2020: Today will be the biggest and brightest moon of the year, know what is ‘super moon’
The Super Moon, the biggest moon of the year 2020, will be seen on April 8. The Super Pink Moon or Super Pink Moon, which will be the first full moon of the spring season, will be seen shining in the night sky.
Know what is supermoon
A supermoon orbit is closest to the Earth. Due to its proximity to our planet, the moon appears very large and bright. This month’s Super Pink Moon is reported to be 3,56,907 kilometers from our planet and generally the average distance between Earth and Moon is 384,400 kilometers.
The full moon is not necessarily a supermoon, because the moon revolves around the Earth in an elliptical orbit. The full moon can be visible to us even when it is far away from our planet. The last supermoon of 2020 appeared between 9 March and 11 March.
The March supermoon was popularly called the Super Warm Moon. However, the people of India will not be able to see this astronomical event, because it will be seen in the morning at 8.5 am and at that time the sunlight will be very strong. The name Pink Moon does not mean that the color of the moon appears pink on this day, but rather the name derives from a pink flower flox subulata, which blooms in spring in the east of North America.
