This phenomenon is popularly called PERIGEE. During moonrise, the view will truly be spectacular, and will be visible even the sun has not set. So get ready for a wonderful spectacle.

Many people believe that supermoons only bring disaster and distress, but scientists have proved that the gravitational pull of these supermoons is not strong enough to cause even a minor tremor, let alone earthquakes and other natural disasters.

Even so, August moons come with some form of mythological importance associated with them, which allows for various nations and cultures to have different names for them. In Red Indian culture, it is a sign of harvesting of crops and the ripening of fruits.

The Slooh TV Channel will live telecast the event from 2.30 a.m. (BST) on Sunday.

Whatever name may be given to it, the August supermoon is sure to be a spectacle for all.

According to, “Looking ahead to next month, the full moon will fall on Sunday, Sept. 27, at 10:51 p.m. EDT, and perigee just 51 minutes earlier, at 10 p.m.

“This perigee will be the closest in 2015, at 221,753 miles (356,877 km). The result will be the largest full moon of the year and even larger high tides.
