There are few feelings better than stepping out into the garden without light and gazing up at the night sky for stargazing.
I have an app on my phone that shows me every single constellation, which is great fun.
If you like to watch the night sky, keep your eyes peeled and maybe go to bed a little later on Monday night because you’ll have the chance to see the first supermoon of the season over western New York.
Supermoons usually occur three or four times a year and always begin at this time of year. The first will take place late Monday evening and until Tuesday morning.
The Strawberry Supermoon will be in the sky on Monday evening. It’s called the Strawberry Supermoon because it occurs during strawberry harvest season.
Supermoons appear larger and brighter than a normal full moon, making them highly visible, according to WIVB.
The Strawberry Supermoon will appear late Monday night, but it won’t reach full illumination until 7:52 a.m. The interesting part of the Strawberry Supermoon is that it is the biggest supermoon of the year and will be very obvious to those who are ready to see it.
Supermoons occur when the moon is slightly closer to Earth. That’s why they appear bigger and brighter.
I will definitely be staying up to watch this super moon, especially since the weather should be cooperating. Partially clear skies for Buffalo Monday evening and very early Tuesday morning.
Maybe set an alarm around 3-4am to check it out…then go back to bed for another three hours before finally getting up for good.
