Astrogeo.ca astronomer Chris Vaughan who prepared the monthly Night Sky calendar Space.com says this mesmerizing lunar show is likely to be underappreciated by many as it clashes with one of the most anticipated meteor showers of the year, the Perseid meteor shower.

While most observers in North America are said to typically see 50 or 60 meteors per hour, a full moon will reduce meteor visibility to around 10-20 per hour.

Supermoon Explanation

A full moon occurs when the Moon and Sun face each other and the Sun’s rays shine directly on the Moon.

In that position it may be difficult to see features on the Moon’s surface in detail during a Full Moon due to the lack of shadows.

Supermoon is the term for a Full Moon that occurs during the Moon’s closest approach to Earth in its orbit, known as perigee.

Quoted Solar SystemSturgeon’s full moon will appear full for about three days from Wednesday morning to Saturday morning.

The planet Saturn, which is almost at its brightest point for the year, will appear above the Moon Thursday evening through Friday morning, August 11-12 2022, shifting from top left to top right as the night progresses.

According to eclipse experts and retired NASA astrophysicists, the definition of a supermoon is a full moon within 90 percent of its closest approach to Earth.

There are four space phenomena that can be seen this year, we have seen three in May, June and July and the August Supermoon will occur last this year.

Supermoon phenomenon as it has happened this year is not a strange thing. Based on Space’s records, in 2023 there will also be four Supermoons, as will happen in 2024. In fact, in 2025 it will occur three times in a row.

If you use a telescope or binoculars to observe the last Supermoon of the year, the observations will be much clearer.

Cameras for astrophotography and the best lenses for astrophotography can also help you capture skywatching scenes, especially for the Supermoon Strugeon phenomenon.
