Who’s ready to see the supermoon tonight?!
Get ready to see the moon in the closest possible way evaaaah. Don’t even think about missing it because tonight at 7:21 PM, the moon will reach its perigee – or its closest point as it orbits the earth.
The perigee will happen almost 2 hours and 31 minutes before goes full moon at 9:52 PM.
In an advisory posted by the PAGASA – DOST, tonight’s supermoon will be the closest perigee since January 26, 1948, and the moon won’t be THIS close to the earth again until November 26, 2034.
If this isn’t a once in a lifetime opportunity for you, then I don’t know what is.
A supermoon is defined as “a new or full moon that occurs when the moon is within 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.” Its term is a modern astrological term coined by Richard Nole.
