Thursday, May 7, 2020
At 6:45 am EDT this morning (Thursday, May 7th), the full moon reached perigee and became the fourth and final supermoon of 2020 (the prior supermoons were in February, March and April.) The next supermoon will occur on April 26, 2021. As opposed to the 4 supermoons of 2020; there will be only 2 in 2021. The final will be on May 26, 2021.
The full moon of May is nicknamed the “Flower” moon because it signifies Spring and plants coming into bloom.
Although the moon’s orbit is already moving away from Earth, you’ll still be able to see more of this supermoon tonight. The perspective of size and brightness is most obvious at moonrise when the full moon is still close to the horizon.
Set an alarm; take a look!!!!
