The Third and Last Supermoon of 2021 on Thursday

ATHENS — The third and last supermoon of 2021 will take place on Thursday night, June 24.

It was preceded by the supermoons of April 27 and May 26.

This full moon is traditionally known as the "Strawberry Moon", because it falls at a time when the ripe strawberries are being harvested.

The Earth-Moon distance ranges from 406,712 kilometres to 356,445 kilometres. When the full moon occurs near the orbit, then it is considered a super-moon, or super-full moon. These terms that are not astronomical but invented by the astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, according to the US space agency (NASA).

On average, supermoons appear about 7 pct bigger and about 15 pct brighter than a typical full moon.
