Pink supermoon appears in the sky of the country - seeing the news, you must have jumped to the window to see whether the pink Supermoon is really enchanting the sky tonight! Yes; this cosmic view will also be seen tomorrow.

Such a form of the moon may raise the question, why is the name pink supermoon? Good to know, the naming of the 'Supermoon' usually comes from the American territory and the seasons. The name 'pink' is based on the name of the pink flower. This flower blooms in the spring in the eastern part of North America and its color is not like the moon at all.

There is a difference between the full moon and the Supermoon. The full moon appears to be full round, but the Supermoon grows larger. This month's Pink Supermoon is 3,56,907 km away from Earth. The average distance between the earth and the moon is 3,84,400 km.

Today’s Supermoon will be the biggest and brightest Supermoon of the year. At this particular time, the satellite moon of the earth will come very close to the Earth. So the moon will look much brighter. It is reported that the moon will be 30 percent brighter than normal. But yes, you must maintain social distance while watching the Supermoon!
