‘Supermoon’ expected tonight

Tonight, if you look into the sky you will see the moon but it will appear differently from what you are used to.

Bigger and brighter than the moon usually is, it is called a ‘Supermoon’.

Remote sensing expert, Dr. Emmanuel Amamoo-Otchere told Joy News that a ‘Supermoon’ is experienced when a full moon comes close to the earth on its lunar orbit.

“The moon will rise from Accra position about forty minutes after about seven o’clock tonight (7:40) and it will be seen in the direction of South East,” he stated.

Dr Amamoo-Otchere said the moon will be reflecting the sun’s radiation and may appear unusually bigger and brighter.
