Stargazers snap stunning pictures of biggest Super Pink Moon 2020

2020 is a season of full moon!

However, despite how easy it will be for people around the world to check out tonight's supermoon, Thaller added that she has a favorite time to watch a full moon - moonrise.

Tonight (April 7), the moon will be at its brightest and largest for the whole year during the "Super Pink Moon".

They will be 12.1m at 8.15am in Jersey and 10.2m at 7.23am in Guernsey tomorrow (Thursday 9th 2020).

The waxing moon sets in the morning next to the pink neon angels, modeled on the little angels on Raphael's Sistine Madonna, on the Dresden Zwinger in Dresden, Germany, Tuesday.

Stargazers have enjoyed the emergence of what is known as a pink moon in the night skies of Europe. Beguilingly, yesterday, April 7, the moon came closest to the Earth for the entire year when it reached the perigee.

The moon will make this close pass to Earth at 2:08 p.m. If you happen to be particularly sensitive to such things, you'll know it, but otherwise, it's just a neat sight and a reason to gaze skyward.

During this coronavirus pandemic, the moon may offer a welcome distraction and reason to stare at the sky, at a safe distance from others.

"You don't need to have super fancy high tech equipment, just your naked eye", he said, adding even with a camera phone you can take a decent picture of the moon when it's this size.
