Stargazers will be rewarded with a supermoon for the second consecutive month as they look up at the night sky.
The “Buck” supermoon in July will be the largest of the year and should offer an even more breathtaking spectacle than the “Strawberry” moon from the previous month.
This full moon’s peak was achieved on Thursday at 4.38 am (AEST).
Fortunately, this does not imply that you will miss the opportunity to view the supermoon.
The moon will still be a remarkable sighting opportunity if the skies are clear in your location on Thursday night.
According to NASA, the moon will appear full for “approximately three days.”
The ideal time to see today’s supermoon will be just after sunset.
Unlike other celestial phenomena, you’ll have a relatively long window of time to watch; it won’t disappear suddenly.
“Unlike some astronomical events, there’s not (a situation where) you’ve got to look at it this instant or else you miss it,” Noah Petro, chief of NASA’s Planetary Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry Lab, said.
“There’s really no moment that you have to be looking at it to maximise your enjoyment of the full moon.”
Petro advised avoiding locations surrounded by high buildings and dense bushes for the clearest moon viewing.
