This amazing astronomical event that is going to be after 68 years. Moon will be closest to Earth on November 14. According to scientists, after 70 years we will see a big moon. So don’t miss from watching the event.
Makes the situation of supermoon when the full moon comes closest to the earth on the orbit. when the moon during orbiting comes closest to Earth it’s called perigee position. And when the moon away from the earth during orbiting it’s called apogee position. Due to an elliptical orbit, normally the distance between the moon and the earth remain 3,57,000 km to 4,06,000 km every month.
The first supermoon appeared on October 16 in this year. The second Supermoon will appear on November 14 and the third on December 14 in this year. But November 14’s Supermoon will be very much larger and most bright. Then in 2034 it will be in sight.
