Watch out, there’s another Supermoon to light up the sky!

We have been in awe of astronomical wonders that happened lately. Last month, a pink supermoon and the Annual Lyrids Meteor Shower both gave us a stunning view of the night sky.

And just today, during predawn hours, the Eta Aquarid Meteor Shower had its turn to show off its radiance. But wait there’s more! Tomorrow, be ready to see another gorgeous Supermoon.

Watch out for the Supermoon Flower Moon

Try looking at the sky tomorrow tonight and you’ll see such a wonderful surprise – the Supermoon called the Flower Moon!

According to NASA, this Supermoon is the last supermoon for this year. It was also mentioned on the agency’s website that the moon will appear full for about three days which started yesterday (if you noticed it) until this coming Friday. However, if the sky is cloudy, you might not be able to get a full or clear glimpse of this stunning heavenly body.

On the other hand, according to the PAGASA Astronomical Diary, the moonrise tomorrow is at 6:45 PM.

Why was it called Supermoon Flower Moon?

According to Maine Farmer’s Almanac which published “Indian” names for full moons in the 1930s, ‘as the full moon in May and the second full moon of spring, the Algonquin tribes of what is now the northeastern United States called this the Flower Moon, for the flowers that are abundant this time of year.’ 

Take a peek of the Supermoon

Want to take a peek of the Supermoon? You can witness such beauty from your window, balcony, or backyard. Since we are still under quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic, better watch the Supermoon from a safe place. Prioritize your health over a great vantage point as you gaze at the sky tomorrow tonight. Stay safe and enjoy viewing the moon everyone!
