June Full Super Moon

June Full Moon

The June Full Moon is a Super Moon. I saw the moon rise at Corroboree Park in Macleay Island. It was right on time…4.44 behind the clouds. Then it rose above the clouds and was very beautiful though hazy because of the cloud

“The common definition of a supermoon is any full Moon that is at a distance of at least 90% of perigee (which is the point at which the Moon is closest to Earth),” the Old Farmer’s Almanac explains. “June’s full Moon stands at 222,238.4 miles (357,658 km) away — comfortably within that cut-off point.” The moon will look unusually full and bright on Tuesday night, and you won’t need a high-tech telescope or fancy binoculars to admire it. And this June, it happens to be at its closest distance to Earth in its orbit, making it a supermoon by most standards.

NASA says a supermoon appears about 17% bigger and 30% brighter than the faintest moon of the year, when it’s farthest from Earth in its orbit. Supermoons are relatively rare, happening three to four times a year and always consecutively. “Only on the night of the full Moon is it possible to see the Moon appear on the horizon during dusk

I did take a couple of photos in the evening too…I love a full moon
