Supermoon has not been seen yet this year. However, according to the cosmic rules, the moon will come very close to the earth again on March 28.

At the end of March, the moon will move very close to the earth as per the cosmic rules. This will be the first Supermoon of 2021. On this day, the moon will be seen several times bigger than its normal shape. 

According to scientists, the moon will look about 14 percent bigger on this day. 

This closest position of the Moon to the Earth in an elliptical orbit is called ‘The Perigee’. At the time, the moon will be at a distance of less than 3.56 lakh kilometers from the earth. The average distance of the moon from the earth is 3,84,402 kilometers. The brightness of Super Moon will be 12.5 percent to 14.1 percent more than usual.

As the people of the world are counting down the hours to enjoy this amazing beauty of the moon, there is also the ‘Supermoon’ fear. Whenever the moon approaches the earth, a natural disaster occurs every time. Ships often sink due to strong tides. 

On the night of ‘Supermoon’ on 19 March 2011, five large ships floating in the Solent Sea of ​​England sank in the abyss before anyone knew it.
