Photo Story: Last of the Supermoons in Minsk

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The full moon rises above apartments in Minsk, Belarus, on the evening of Thursday 07 May 2020.

The ‘Full Flower Moon’ or the ‘Corn Planting Moon’ or the ‘Milk Moon’ is the last in a series of four super moons in 2020.

The Supermoon happens when the Moon appears larger and brighter.

The phenomenon happens when the celestial satellite reaches its closest point to Earth – known as a perigee – and is on the opposite side of Earth to the sun.

The next supermoon won’t make an appearance until April 27, 2021
