Pink supermoon seen around the world

But the moon won't appear full until 10:35 p.m. EDT (0235 GMT), according to NASA.

The pink supermoon rises behind the Chariot of Glory sculptural group in central Saint Petersburg, Russia April 7, 2020.

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

WITBANK NEWS is excited to see if our local photographers managed to capture the lovely Super Pink Moon.

Of this year's 13 lunar perigees, this is one of only two lunar perigees that comes closer than 221,830 miles (357,000 km). Other names for the spectacle include the Egg Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon or the Fish Moon.

April's full moon will be the closest supermoon of 2020, and it is also known as the "Pink Moon" after the pink flowers that start to appear in the fields this month in some places.

"Supermoons" might sound miraculous but it's really just the blanket term given to any full moon that occurs when the Earth and Moon are particularly close.

Happy moon viewing and enjoy some other pictures from local photographers last night. During these events, the Moon can appear significantly larger in the night sky, and up to 15% brighter than a standard full moon. "Even with the unaided eye, you can see the dark blotches on it which are the basalt plains", Brown said.

Despite its name, there will not be any noticeable colour difference to the full moon, which is due to reach its peak during the early hours of Wednesday at 3.55am.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, April's full moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of Phlox subulata, a pink wildflower native to eastern North America.
