On the night of this Tuesday, June 14, there will be a Super Moon. That is, because the Full Moon phase occurs when this star reaches perigee, the point of its orbit closest to the Earth (357.658 kilometers away from Earth), it will appear slightly larger (about one tenth) than is usual and brighter.

As the Earth's satellite orbit is elliptical, its path is not always the same, which allows this approach to our planet.

If the sky is not cloudy, it will be a beautiful astronomical spectacle to see. The phenomenon occurs at 23:22 (Lisbon time), but can be seen throughout the night.

During the summer, which is about to begin, there will be two other Super Moons: the 13th of July and the 12th of August.
