From dusk on the evening of August 1, the super moon was visible in many countries around the world with a larger size and brightness than the normal full moon.
Late at night, the Super Moon – also known as the Sturgeon Moon in North America – brilliantly lights up the night sky.
At dawn on August 2, the super moon reached its zenith. At this time, the distance between the Moon and the Earth is estimated to be 357,530 km, which is about 26,870 km closer to the average distance between the two celestial bodies.
