Today, the Moon will be only 3,57,264 kilometres away from the Earth, The Earth is all set to witness a ‘supermoon’ today bringing the lunar body at the closest distance this year.
The phenomenon happens on a full moon night at the Moon's closest approach to the Earth, lighting up the night skies bright.
The last supermoon this year – also known as ‘Strawberry Moon’ – occurred on June 14, which marked the last full Moon of spring or the first full moon of summer.
Those who missed catching a glimpse of the ‘strawberry supermoon’ last month will have another chance as this month’s full moon will be back tonight.
The supermoon of 2022 is also known as ‘buck moon’ – named after antlers that form on a buck's forehead typically around this time of the year.
