This Supermoon is Spectacular

The Supermoon makes its appearance Monday, 9 March casting a warm glow in the night sky.

The event occurs when the Moon, “our cosmic partner,” is full and at its closest point to the Earth, appearing bigger and brighter.

Everybody gets all romantic about the Sunrise and the Sunset but a Moonrise and a Moonset can be very dramatic and exciting,” said an astronomer at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. “They are spectacular.”

It takes about 28 days for the Moon to circle the Earth and during its orbit, it gets closer or farther from the Earth, the closest point of the moon’s orbit is about 226,000 miles away, reports NASA.

It is not a perfect circle. If it is full, meaning, all of the Sun’s light is hitting the face that faces us and if it is at its closest approach when that happens, it will appear a little bit brighter and bigger, and the color can appear orange or blue, depending on its location, we will see it again on 8 April and 7 May .

If you can see it enjoy the show!
