The Biggest and Brightest Supermoon of the Year on Tuesday

April 7, 2020

ATHENS – The biggest and brightest moon of the year will rise in Greece on Tuesday and will be the third and best out of the four supermoons of 2020.

At 21:08 Greek time on Tuesday, the moon will approach the Earth at its closest point for this year, at a distance of 356,907 kilometres (perigee). A few hours later, at 05:35 Greek time on Wednesday, there will be a full moon. The near coincidence of a full moon with the moon’s perigee is expected to make tidal phenomena more intense.

When the supermoon is near the horizon, the moon looks even bigger to observers.

The next one will be on May 7.
