NASA According to the U.S., a supermoon is said to be the period 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 closest point in Earth’s orbit on this day at perigee. Because of this, it will appear slightly larger than normal compared to the normal full moon. It will be the fourth of four consecutive supermoons to be visible.
During this time the distance between the Earth and the Moon will be reduced by about 26 thousand kilometers.
However, due to the Sturgeon Moon, other celestial events visible in the sky will be affected. The Perseids meteor shower is also to take place at the same time. It is considered one of the best meteor showers of the year, but NASA says that due to the supermoon, its fun will be reduced.
Usually 50 to 100 meteors can be seen per hour during the Perseid meteor shower, but this time only 10 to 20 meteor showers will be visible per hour. The rest of the showers would 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 them shine in the sky.
