The ‘supermoon’ is an extra big full moon, The first time in more than 30 years.In this year we can see the supermoon or Bloodmoonon Sept. 27, 2015.We want to wait next supermoon to 2033.
Whats the Supermoon or Bloodmoon ?
A supermoon is a full moon.In this time moon will come to very close to earth.As scientifically explanation “When the moon is farthest away it’s known as apogee, and when it’s closest it’s known as perigee. On Sept. 27, we are going to have a perigee full moon.” At perigee, the moon is about 31,000 miles closer to Earth than at apogee. That distance equates to more than once around the circumference of Earth. It will makes appearance of the moon 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter in the sky than an apogee full moon so it got the name “supermoon.”
why the supermoon comes to red colour ?
You know the moon does not make its own light.It reflects light from the sun. At the time of lunar eclipse.The moon appears less and less bright as sunlight is blocked by the Earth’s shadow. At the time sunlight reaches the moon indirectly and is refracted around the “edges” of Earth, through Earth’s atmosphere. Because of this, almost all colors except red are “filtered” out, and the eclipsed moon appears reddish or dark brown. This filtering is caused by particulates in our atmosphere; when there have been a lot of fires or volcanic errections. Lunar eclipses will appear darker and redder. but its not harmfull for our earth so its got a nick name “Bloodmoon”.
Is this supermoon is harmfull to earth?
Some religious groups believing it to be a sign of the JUDGEMENT DAY (End of the world).But science disownerd this concept.They are telling it will cause some tidal effects and volcanic errections.
