We see a supermoon when there’s a full moon and its orbit is the nearest to Earth. Fun fact: even if the orbit of the moon around Earth appears to be round, in reality it isn’t. It is elliptical in shape and the nearest point of the moon’s orbit to Earth is termed the perigee, which is a distance of approximately 363,300 km. So, when the moon is near or at its perigee, we Earthians see a brighter and larger moon than its normal size. The furthest point of the moon, called the apogee, is approximately 405,000 km.
The full moon or the supermoon 2022 will appear this week from Tuesday morning to Friday dawn, according to NASA. As per the astronomy websites, the moon will come the closest at 357,418 km from Earth, rewarding us with glimpses of the brightest moon of the year.
Will you be able to see supermoon 2022 from your terrace? Well, how clearly you see it would depend on the local weather of your city. Canada is most likely to experience clear skies all through the week whereas in Ontario, the forecast predicts rain and clouds.
As its July, the full moon of this month has various names, including Thunder Moon, Buck Moon, Salmon Moon and Hay Moon. Last month’s supermoon was spotted on 14th June, 2022. It was named the ‘strawberry moon’ as it occurred at the time of strawberry harvest.
