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
Stargazers, take note – tomorrow will be your last chance this year to see a full supermoon, as the ‘super flower moon’ peaks in the skies above Devon and Cornwall.
If you’re into astronomy, the month of May has been a real treat already, as the skies have been alight with the Aquarid meteor shower, Elon Muk’s Starlink satellites have been visible, and now a super moon is set to light up the night sky.
In early April, many people shared stunning photos of the pink supermoon, which was the third of the year, following the worm moon on March 9.
The Super Flower Moon will appear on May 7, when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth to the Sun, meaning its face will be fully illuminated. It will reach its peak at around 11:45 BST, but it should be visible all night.
Although April’s pink supermoon was the largest of 2020, the moon will still look unusually large and bright that evening, so be sure to look up and catch a glimpse of it on Thursday night.
