strawberry supermoonThursday 24 June There was a great one Almost Supermon and call”of strawberry“.
We attach some pictures of the show.

If you have one Super Moon When the satellite is in the full moon phase (full moon) and at the same time at its closest point to Earth (perigee), on this occasion we may note that the moon will be slightly larger (8-10% larger) than normal and therefore its brightness will be greater (15 % More).
Stage begeo Whatever happens A few hours before the full moon, So we will have one Almost supermoon. Despite this, the show will still be very impressive.
but why “of strawberry“Of course we won’t see a strawberry moon, let alone a red moon.

the term superluna coined by Astrologer In 1979 (Richard Knoll) and for this very reason he is not respected by the scientific community. Astronomers prefer to refer to the phenomenon in a pair of less understandable terms, “perigee-syzygy.” The first term refers to the period when the Moon is closest to the Earth, and the term “sygyzy” is used to indicate the alignment of three celestial bodies belonging to the same gravitational system.
