Supermoon LIVE STREAMING: How to Watch Tonight’s Super Strawberry Moon
Tonight, a SUPERMOON will shine brightly in the sky under the pretense of the magnificent Strawberry Moon. On this website, you may watch the Supermoon from the comfort of your own home.
Tonight’s Supermoon is the last of four Supermoons that have shown in the night sky this year. When the Full Moon is close to or at the lunar perigee, the Moon’s closest orbital distance from Earth, supermoons arise. The Full Moon will reach its apogee tonight at 7.39pm BST, when the Moon and Sun are completely opposite one another, with the Earth in the middle.
The Moon will not rise until after 9.30pm BST, therefore you won’t be able to see it from the UK.
The good news is that, due to the Virtual Telescope Project in Italy, you may track the Supermoon’s travels without having to leave your house.
“We love the Full Moon,” said Dr Gianluca Masi, an astrophysicist in charge of the Virtual Telescope. We never miss its display when it rises or sets in a kaleidoscope of colors.
“It’s much more intriguing when it’s closer to Earth than usual (as characterized by the popular phrase ‘Supermoon’).
“And what if you could see all of this from Rome, while our satellite soars above the city’s iconic skyline?”
The Strawberry Moon is a name derived from Native American time-keeping practices for the Full Moon in June.
According to legend, this Moon appeared around the same time when wild strawberries were ripening and ready to be picked.
This Full Moon is also known as the Mead Moon or the Honey Moon in Europe.
The Supermoon can be seen in the attached video player above, courtesy of the Virtual Telescope Project.
The free live feed is set to begin at 8 p.m. BST (7pm UTC).
The program will follow the Moon as it passes over the beautiful skyline of Rome, Italy’s capital.
And Dr. Masi will be on hand to explain this cosmic event to you.
So, if the show is threatened by gloomy skies and bad weather tonight, check in to the broadcast here.
And you don’t want to miss out on this Supermoon because the next one won’t be until June 2022.
Supermoons occur three to four times every year and always in pairs.
You could think so because the Moon appears to be slightly closer to the Earth than usual. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
