How and when to see the Strawberry Supermoon
Strawberry supermoon 2022: when is the best time to see it today, Tuesday 14 June?
The full moon will appear bigger and brighter than usual, but don’t expect it to be pink: the name has nothing to do with its colour
Tonight, Tuesday 14 June, the moon will be looking bigger and brighter than usual thanks to an astronomical phenomenon known as ‘strawberry supermoon’. The term was adopted by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, and it occurs when a full moon or new moon passes through its point of orbit closest to the Earth, which is known as its perigee. It can appear 14% bigger than usual and 30% brighter. Tonight, the moon will be just over 357,000 kilometres away. See more of this story from the Sur in English website.
