Juarez City- From different points of the city you can see tonight the pink supermoon that is the first full moon of the season.
Scientists explain that this phenomenon occurs when there is lunar perigee, which means, the shortest distance between the satellite and Earth, resulting in an impressive natural phenomenon since we can see the moon larger than usual.
According to National Geographic, this pink supermoon will look 7 percent bigger and 15 percent brighter than usual, so it will be a unique phenomenon.
It is called ‘pink supermoon’ because it arises just as spring arrives in the northern hemisphere and coincides with the buds of the moss flower called ‘wild land flox’ whose hues are pink. Besides that it was named in this way to differentiate it from other full moons.
