What better way to stay connected with your loved ones while you’re apart than to witness this amazing event under the same sky? If you missed all supermoon sightings prior to this, don’t worry! You have one more chance at witnessing this beautiful natural phenomenon on Thursday night (7th May).

Full Moon 2020 Super Flower Moon May Supermoon 2447747

Attention all star-gazers and astronomy enthusiasts, this Thursday will see the rise of the fourth and final supermoon of the year. The rare occasion is also known as the “Super Flower Moon,” as it accompanies the start of springtime’s colourful blooms, as reported by Science Focus.

What makes this moon so special? Well aside from the fact that every supermoon is a full moon, a supermoon is particularly bigger and brighter, making a real spectacle in the sky if you find yourself in the right place, at the right time.

The most optimal time to witness this phenomenon is when the supermoon rises close to the horizon.

For those of us in Malaysia, that would mean some time around 7:18 p.m., according to Time and Date. If you’re planning to catch the supermoon right as it rises, you just might be able to see it move through the thickest part of the Earth’s atmosphere. So instead of the moon’s usual white orb appearance, it can be seen in hues of yellow to deep orange.

But as all good things come to those who wait, so does the supermoon. You’ll have to exercise a little patience as the specific time the Moon appears on your horizon tends to be a little later than what apps and charts say. Be sure to get into position just after the Moon is set to rise in your location. If the skies are clear and the weather is good, you’ll see the “Super Flower Moon”, in all its beauty.

Just how special is this phenomenon? Considering that the next supermoon is due on 27th April 2021, we suggest you put this one in your books while you still can!

Will you be watching the Super Flower Moon on Thursday?
