If you’re a fan of stargazing, make sure you book tomorrow evening off in your diary.
A supermoon is set to take to our skies – and it’s your last chance to see one for almost a year!
The Super Flower Moon will appear on May 7, when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun, meaning its face will be fully illuminated.
It’s also a super moon, as the moon will be at its closest point to Earth.
NASA explained: “Going by the seasons, as the second full Moon of spring, the Native American tribes of the northeastern United States called this the Flower Moon, as flowers are abundant this time of year in most of these areas.
While the Super Flower Moon will officially peak at around 11:45 Irish time, it should be visible all evening, so make sure you look up on Thursday night!
Unfortunately, this will be the fourth and last supermoon of 2020, with the previous three taking place on February 9, March 9 and April 8.
