A supermoon occurs when the Moon appears larger than it is because it is at its shortest distance from Earth.

One of the biggest astronomical events of this year, ‘Supermoon 2022’ will be seen tomorrow, that is, on July 13.

On this day the Moon will reach its closest point in Earth’s orbit, due to which it will appear slightly larger than normal compared to the normal full moon.

According to NASA, this will be the third of four consecutive supermoons to be seen.

It can be seen not only for one day but for three days. Tomorrow the moon will not only appear bigger than every day, but it will also appear brighter and pinker.

On July 13, the distance between the Earth and the Moon will become the shortest.

This supermoon is also called Buck Moon. It got its name because it is said that at this time of the year new horns of the male deer grow.

Bucks shed their horns every year and then new horns appear and their horns become bigger and more beautiful as the years go by.

According to NASA, the supermoon will occur on Wednesday (July 13) at 5 a.m. EDT (2:30 p.m. IST) at its closest point to Earth, with a perigee distance of 3,57,264 kilometers.

The full moon will also be visible at dusk on Wednesday evening at 9:44 p.m. EDT (7:14 a.m. IST).

In a statement, the US space agency said that “the Moon will appear full for about three days around this time, from Tuesday morning through Friday morning.

“Actually, it will not be a full moon, but the size of the moon will look bigger. Apart from this, the shadow strip will appear very thin on the moon during this time.

The change in the moon will be very slow, due to which it will look like a full moon. It is a bit difficult to see this process with open eyes.

A supermoon occurs when the Moon appears larger than it is because it is at its shortest distance from Earth.

Due to being closest, the moon is not only visible but also very bright. This condition is called perigee.

Along with this, the moon also moves away during the orbit of the earth, which is called apogee.

At present, the distance between the Earth and the Moon is 4,05,500 km.
