The same full moon will happen in our country during the following night, on Tuesday April 27 at 5:33 CEST. About 11 hours later, at 17:25, the moon will be as close as it can be to Earth, on the alleged ground floor.
On Monday, the moon rises in the light just before sunset around 7:30 in the evening. Tuesday at dusk around nine in the morning.
“Because the phase of the full moon will occur near moonrise today (Monday), while the largest approach will not happen until tomorrow (Tuesday), so it is worth considering the two evenings – today and tomorrow. And of course, Tuesday in the early morning hours around 5:30, When a so-called super-super physical happens (the moon will be completely full), Peter Horalek, astronomer and publisher of astronomy, told Novinky
The term “Super Moon” or “Super Full Moon” is not considered an official astronomical terms, but rather is used when two events meet together: a full moon and a moon on the ground floor.
“But not every extraordinary achievement is remarkable,” the Astronomical Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic notes on its Facebook page. “The April mixture will occur between the smallest distance and the moon closest to the moon during the day. While the moon will not reach its closest point on Earth on Tuesday morning, after Tuesday evening, the moon will rise above our horizon after the full moon and the moon will move away as well.”
As we can see above in the article’s first video, Reuters has already shown the first shots of this great year – the one above Australia’s world-famous Bondi Beach.
Really not pink
However, the nickname “The Pink Full Moon” has nothing to do with its coloration, as Pavel Gabzdel, an expert in lunar astronomy, noted in his text on the website of the Czech Slovak Astronomical News Agency.
“According to the old yearbooks of American farmers, each moon has its own name. April 1 is named after the pink color of flamingos for the thorny or ornamental flowers from North America that bloom in April.”
The largest full moon is in May and the smallest in December
So the April completion is the second biggest achievement this year. Right on the next full moon, which will happen on May 26 at 1 pm, the moon will approach us at 357,450 km. But at that time we will not see our companion in the sky, he will be below the horizon. Its closest approach to Earth will happen shortly before the full moon, on May 26 at 4 am, when it is 357,300 km from us.

On the contrary, the smallest full moon awaits us on December 19. Thus, the difference between the nearest and farthest full moon in 2021 will be approximately 49,000 km. At first glance, this might seem like a lot, but the difference is relatively small for the average observer. However, it is worth noting, especially for photographers.
As for other astronomical phenomena during this period, the Lerrida meteor swarm reached its peak last week. These “falling stars” occur in the atmosphere due to the extinction of ice dust particles emitted from the nucleus of comet C / 1861 G1 (Thatcher). During the maximum, 10 to 15 meteors per hour can be seen in the dark sky outside of large cities and light pollution. The Associated Press provided a video of these meteors “spray” over Hawaii.

The meteor shower from-Aquarida from Comet Halley will peak in the May sky – on the night of May 5-6.
