By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Sky gazers will be able to enjoy the arrival of the biggest Supermoon of 2022 tonight. This means that the moon is orbiting closer to earth and will appear larger and brighter, Yahoo reports.
The ‘Buck supermoon’ as it is being referred to marks the third supermoon in a row.
The moon will reach its full phase at 2:38 p.m. EDT or 11:38 a.m. PDT (18:38 GMT).
A full moon occurs when the moon and sun are opposite each other and sunlight strikes the moon face-on, Space.com reports. Supermoons occur when the full moon coincides with the moon’s closest approach to earth in its orbit.
NASA notes that July’s full moon is not just an impressive skywatching target but is also an important event in many different cultures worldwide.
