Wednesday & Thursday, April 7 & 8, 2020
We’ve written about Super Moons before (see Moon over Miami, February 11, 2020.) Super Moons are a natural phenomenon occurring several times a year, every year. A Super Moon is a full moon around perigee (the closest that the moon comes to the earth in its elliptic orbit.) This results in the moon appearing larger than usual because it is closer than usual.
In 2020, there’ll be 13 full moons—4 of them Super Moons and 1 Blue Moon (a second full moon in a month.) That Blue Moon will occur on Halloween this year—a truly rare occurrence! Three of the Super Moons for 2020 are now over but the 4th will occur on May 7, 2020. Don’t miss it!!!
Here are our pics of the Super Pink Moon:
April’s full moon (the closest this year) is the first full moon of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere. It is named for the pink flower, Phlox Subulata, that blooms in North America in the Spring.
Next month’s moon is called the Flower Moon, signifying the myriad of flowers that pop into bloom in the Northern Hemisphere during the month of May!
We love taking pictures of the beautiful moon. Hope you enjoyed seeing them!!!
