Stargazers marvel at emerging pink supermoon in skies above UK

Kristine Garrett | 29 June, 2020, 04:12

It has been called the "pink supermoon", but Monash University astronomer Michael Brown says it won't be pink, and in fact, it might not be that super but, that doesn't mean you shouldn't look.

As this will also be a supermoon, people can expect it to look up to 14% bigger and 30% brighter in the sky as it reaches its closest point to Earth, known as its perigee.

If a Full Moon happens to coincide within 90 percent of the lunar perigee, we witness a handsome Supermoon.

A woman photographs the Pink Supermoon over mountain Smetovi, during an astronomical event that occurs when the moon is closest to the Earth in its orbit, making it appear much larger and brighter than usual, in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, April 7, 2020.

"To be honest, some of the supermoon photography out there is people playing tricks with zoom lenses ..."

Families can start studying the moon with their young children and this supermoon is a great place to start, Faherty said. Weather across the United States is packed with clouds at the moment, and you'll need clear skies if you have any hope of basking in the Moon's glory. Other names for the spectacle include the Egg Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon or the Fish Moon.

The moon will be full only on Tuesday night, but will be large enough on Monday and Wednesday to still merit a look, Delaney said.

He said it's still worth venturing into your backyard or gazing at it out the window. Here's when you can see them.

"This is an invitation for everybody to become that moon expert, be the person in that small group that can differentiate when the moon is just a little bit brighter", Faherty said.

"Some of the bright stars and planets are very easy to see with the unaided eye".
