7th April, 2020
The moon will be closest to the Earth on Tuesday night. At the same time, on April 8, the moon of the full moon will be seen. Sumit Srivastava, the scientific officer of Indira Gandhi Constellation School, says that the moon will be the closest to the Earth at 11.38 am on Tuesday night. At this time, the distance of the Moon from Earth will be just 356900 kilometers.
Daylight will not be seen
According to astronomy, this position of the Moon is called the position of the perigee. From this time onwards, the moon will begin to look quite large to us. But to see the super moon, we have to wait for Wednesday because the full moon will be on the next day i.e. April 8 at eight in the morning. In the daylight, we will not be able to see the super moon, so immediately after sunset on Wednesday, we will be able to observe the amazing view of the super moon all night because the moon will not be set on April 8.
Supermoon is a unique event
In general, the distance of the Earth from the Moon is considered to be 384400 kilometers and when the Moon is the most distant from the Earth, this distance is about 405696 kilometers. This is called apogi's position in astronomy. Supermoon is a unique event that we will be able to see this whole year the moon will never come so close to the Earth. Sumit explains that the full moon phase of the moon will occur just eight hours and 35 minutes after the moon reaches its perigee position. Because it will be seen at 8:05 am on Wednesday morning and sunrise will have happened at this time. So we have to wait till the night to see Super Moon. We will be able to watch Super Moon for the entire night of April 8.
