(ANSA) - ROME, APRIL 6 - Tomorrow the most spectacular Super Moon of 2020: in fact the full Moon will be closer than usual and will appear a little bigger and 15% brighter. It is the third, after those of the previous two months, but it will be even more super because it will be even closer. It will also be a precious opportunity to discover the beauty of the night sky, from the balcony or from the window, in a period in which you live in the house to limit the spread of the SarsCoV2 coronavirus. The night between 7 and 8 April our satellite will reach the Full Moon phase near the minimadistance from Earth (perigee), which will touch at 20.10 on 7 April, when it will be 356,908 km from us, against an average distance of just over 384,000 kilometers. This "overlap" between full moon and passage to the perigee, explains Gianluca Masi, astrophysicist, scientific manager of the Virtual Telescope Project, is popularly referred to as Superluna, but in astronomy we prefer to speak of full moon at the perigee.
