Pink Super Moon: Satellite will be at its brightest until Thursday

An astronomical phenomenon called Super Pink Moon can be seen in the sky between the night of Tuesday (7) and Thursday (9), marking the largest Super Moon this year.

This happens because at 3h08 of Brasilia time of this Tuesday (7), the Moon is in the closest distance in relation to the Earth the whole year. It is 356,907 km away from our planet. About 8 hours and 35 minutes later, at 11:35 pm, we will still have the full moon.

Supermoon is not a term used by astronomers. In fact, this is a term used to indicate the moment when the Moon in its full or new phase is at the closest point to our planet in its elliptical orbit. As this point is called perigee, if you want to show scientific knowledge tonight, don't say Super Moon, say that the Moon is in a dangerous peril.

The opposite phenomenon also exists. When the Moon is at its peak, that is, the most distant point from the Earth in its elliptical orbit, the so-called Microlua occurs.

Although Supermoon is a momentary, almost instantaneous moment, the full moon from Tuesday to Thursday will have its "potentialized" brightness and appear even greater.

The phenomenon also affects the tides. Bullish and bearish movements will be more intense than normal. Rains and storms on the coast can also become more intense.

Another detail that is worth noting is that the Pink Super Moon is not pink. It gets its name because the phenomenon coincides with the blooming of the pink Phlox subulata flower, which marks spring in North America.

To observe this Super Moon, it is recommended to be in high places and with the horizon free. Just look towards the east, since sunset.
