You can catch the last glorious supermoon of 2020 next month!
Well, 2020 sure has been a year so far. And while it’s been odd, we’ve gotten pretty lucky because we’ve had multiple supermoon evenings. But that being said, we won’t be seeing them again for a while as the last supermoon of 2020 will be rising on May 7. Because all good things must come to an end.
And this supermoon has many names. These names include the full flower moon, mother’s moon, milk moon, and corn planting moon. So basically, it sounds like this moon is welcoming in summer and we’ll definitely take that. Plus maybe it’s hinting that we should be working on our green thumbs.

But let’s be clear about one thing, it’s definitely a supermoon. On average, supermoons are 7% bigger and 15% brighter than regular full moons. Honestly, when we were kids we thought that our eyes were playing tricks on us, so it’s good to know that it’s a real thing.
Anyway, you don’t want to miss this moon. And your best chances of getting a great viewing are away from city lights and in elevated places. If you’ve never been stargazing before, this is an excellent excuse to get started. So get ready to get the car packed for a road trip to the moon. If you’d like to learn more, be sure to click here.
