Button, here’s the supermoon we clicked from our terrace garden on Monday.
Where was I?
In bed. Fast asleep.
But that’s mean. You should have woken me up. This is a spectacle I shouldn’t have missed.
Next time round, no matter where you are or what you are doing, I won’t forget to point it out to you. Now, for your information, a moon as bright and big as this one will be seen again in 2034. That’s 18 years away. Do you know when a moon becomes a supermoon?
It happens every time the moon comes close to our planet while travelling along its orbit which is not equidistant from the earth. And when it moves close to our planet, we see a bigger and brighter moon. This full moon was 30 miles closer to earth on Monday than it was in 1948 which was the last time it was sighted.
I am told that any wish made on a supermoon night is granted.
Next time make a wish and see if it comes true.
