Tonight will come the last supermoon of the year.
The lunar event, called the “Flower Moon,” reaches its peak illumination at 6:45 a.m. ET on Thursday, May 7—but if you venture outside tonight the moon will be visible.
Supermoons occur when a full moon coincides with the moon arriving in orbit at its closest approach to Earth, magnifying its usual heavenly size and brightness by as much as 30%.
Tonight’s Flower Moon completes a supermoon run over the past few months, beginning with the Snow Moon in February, followed by the Worm Moon in March and the Pink Moon in April. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the name of the Flower Moon honors the Native American tradition of using celestial events to trace seasons as the month of May is a time when frost subsides and plants bloom in the northern hemisphere;
One of the perfect times for witnessing the Supermoon is at sunset. Go outdoors and head in the direction opposite to the sun to see the moon rising.
The Flower Supermoon will be visible at 6:45 PM (peak time) in the Philippines on 7 May 2020.
For those who miss it, the moon will continue to appear full through Friday morning, May 8, offering plenty of opportunities to glimpse the spectacle.
