new Delhi. The last Supermoon of the year 2020 (Supermoon 2020) will be seen today i.e. Thursday evening at 4:15 pm. It will be in great shape. According to NASA, the moon can be seen in full size and bright form in the sky. Astronomers have also named it Super Flower Moon and Corn Planting Moon. After May 7, you will be able to see Super Pink Moon in the next year i.e. 27 April 2021.

The average distance between the Earth and the Moon is 384,400 km, but during the Supermoon this distance decreases by about 23,000 km. In this case, the distance between the moon and the earth is just 361,184 kilometers. Therefore, the moon looks quite big. Those who have not seen the supermoon in April, they can see it today. However, we will not be able to see the supermoon in India because it will not be visible due to the strong sun rays here. Therefore this amazing astronomical event can be seen on the Internet.

What is a supermoon?
The Moon is the Earth’s satellite and it revolves around the Earth. During the parikrama, there is such an opportunity once a year when the moon comes very close to the earth. This situation is called supermoon. During this time, the size of the moon appears larger and brighter than normal days. Today, during the supermoon, the moon will appear 14 percent larger and 30 percent percent brighter.
