NASA According to, the supermoon is called the situation when the Moon’s orbit is closest to the Earth at the same time the Moon is full. A supermoon can appear 14 to 30 percent brighter than an average night. This supermoon is expected to be visible for three days from Wednesday to Friday.
From a scientific point of view, the Moon will reach its perigee, its closest point in the Earth’s orbit, on this day. Because of this, it will appear slightly larger than normal compared to the normal full moon. This will be the fourth of four supermoons to be visible in a row.
During this, the distance between the Earth and the Moon will decrease by about 26 thousand kilometers.
However, due to the sturgeon moon, other astronomical events visible in the sky will be affected. The Perseids meteor shower is also going to happen at the same time. It is touted to be one of the best meteor showers of the year, but NASA says the fun will be curtailed by the supermoon.
During the Perseid meteor shower, usually 50 to 100 meteors can be seen per hour, but this time only 10 to 20 meteors will be seen per hour. The rest of the shower will almost disappear in the light of the moon. These meteor showers were last seen in the year 1992. This time it will be at its peak on August 13, but then the light of the supermoon will make it shine in the sky.
