Super Flower Moon in Pakistan on 26 May 2021


SUPER FLOWER BLOOD MOON!!
The second Super Full Moon in #Pakistan on 2021 falls on May 26, 2021. The first one was on April 26/27.

When the full moon and perigee are close, it is called a "supermoon" though definitions aren't consistent as it isn't an astronomical term. Ordinarily the moon is an average of 240,000 miles (384,500 kilometers) from Earth, but its orbit isn't perfectly circular. So the distance varies slightly. When it reaches perigee this month, the moon will be 222,022 miles (357,311 km) from Earth, per 

It's the closest full moon to Earth in 2021, making it appear bigger and brighter in the sky. May's supermoon will also be the first total lunar eclipse since January 2019, according to EarthSky.
