When you look up into the sky tonight, hopefully, you will be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of something extra special.
That’s right, tonight, April 27, the incredibly rare Pink Super Moon will be gracing the sky.
The wonderous phenomenon is known as the 'perigee-syzygy moon' where the moon will look 14 per cent bigger and 30 per cent brighter than usual and it may even have a subtle pink hue to it.
This is because the moon’s rotation around the earth is slightly oval and tonight happens to be a special time when the moon is much closer than it normally is.
Unfortunately, the weather across most of New Zealand isn’t ideal for moon-gazing, but hopefully, Kiwis still be able to catch a glimpse of the large super moon!
If you don’t get to see it this evening, you could always try and get up super early in the morning on May 28 and see it before the sun comes up.
And if you still don’t get to see it, we will get another chance as there will be a second super moon – there are just two in all of 2021 – set to hit the skies on May 26.
Fingers crossed we all get to see the incredible super moon!
