Team Udayavani, Apr 5, 2020, 10:59 AM IST

In April we will see the brightest supermoon of the year called the Super pink moon.

Super Pink Moon 2020 will occur on April 7. The sky-gazers will be able to witness the celestial event at 2.35 am GMT (8.05 AM IST).

The global time for the Super Pink is April 8, 2020, at 2.35 am. Even though people in India would not able to witness the event due to daylight but one can surely watch it online.

Astronomers call the Super Pink moon as a perigean full moon. The full moon of April is generally called the pink moon according to old Native American culture and the name has nothing to do with the colour of the celestial body.

The previous supermoon of 2020 appeared between 9 and 11 March. During this time, the moon is at its closest distance to earth at 356,907 km away.The moon can appear just up to 30 percent larger than on any average day.
