The ‘Super Moon’, also known as the ‘Pink Moon’, appeared on April 27-28, 2021 and is said to be the first of at least two such celestial events this year.
For the uninitiated, a ‘Super Moon’ occurs when the Moon is at or near its closest point to Earth at the same time it is full. This event makes the Moon look larger and brighter in the sky.
