How to see tonight's supermoon on the Costa del Sol

almudena nogués

A supermoon will be visible throughout the whole of Spain from 6.48pm this evening until 7.33am tomorrow. The moon can be viewed without a telescope or binoculars due to forecast clear skies. It is called a supermoon because the moon shines 30 per ... cent more brightly and is 14 per cent larger than a micromoon (when the moon appears its smallest). These discrepancies in size occur because moon has an eliptical orbit around Earth. At its closest point (called the perigee), the moon is at least ... 356,000 kilometres away from Earth. At its furthest distance from earth (called the apogee), the moon is at least 406,000 kilometres away from Earth. A supermoon occurs when a new moon (the first lunar phase) or full moon coincides with the perigee - the



Looking up to the Moon


With the anniversary celebrations of the first Moon landing, it's the right time to look back at just how far we've come in half a century. The regime was at that time blighted by corruption, with Falangist and technocrats fighting it out within ... 50 years later, we are better off, of course we are. But in some things we're still looking up at the Moon. Let's see if things improve after the summer holidays.



Harvest moon(s)

Ken Campbell

...gave a different name to each of the full moons and some of these have stuck and are still used today. Yesterday and today there will be a full moon, although to be accurate, the full moon occurred at 2.41 pm universal time yesterday afternoon. ... Usually the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumn Equinox is christened the Harvest Moon. For the first time in many years we have two full moons that can claim the title, as the last full moon occurred on 6 September and so both are more or less ... equal distance from the equinox that occurred on 21 September. The Harvest Moon usually rises a little earlier than other full moons simply because it is so close to the equinox when the earth has 12 hours of day and 12 hours of night. This early



Full Moon facts


Tonight's full moon will give you a perfect chance to learn some of its features. The full moon is directly opposite the Sun in the sky and so rises tonight at 18.15, exactly the same time that the Sun sets. If you can catch it just as it is rising ... perspective. The moon shines purely by reflecting sunlight off its surface and while the full moon may look very bright, rock from the surface brought back to Earth by the Apollo astronauts is really quite dark in colour, almost black. Contrary to popular ... belief there is no “dark side of the moon”. The full moon occurs because the Sun is shining directly onto the side that is facing us; as the moon orbits around the Earth, the Sun will light different areas of it. When it has travelled halfway round, and



The century's longest lunar eclipse


We are in for a real treat this evening (Friday 27 July) - a total eclipse of the Moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and Moon line up perfectly and the Moon passes through the shadow cast by the Earth. An eclipse of the Sun occurs ... when the line-up is the other way round and the Moon's shadow falls upon the Earth. Whereas an eclipse of the Sun can only be seen from a small area along a very narrow band where the shadow touches the Earth, an eclipse of the Moon can be seen from ... any part of the planet where the Moon can be seen. Tonight's eclipse will be visible to more than half of the Earth's population. From Spain the eclipse will already be under way as the Moon rises in the southeast at 8.30pm. It may be difficult to



The blue supermoon


Many moons ago, before calendars were invented, people used to count the year by the full moon. And as there are usually 12 full moons each year then this was a convenient, if not very accurate, way of marking time. Each of the full moons was ... given a name such as the Harvest Moon and Hunter's Moon for example. But as the period between full moons is about 29.5 days then it is possible for a month to have two full moons. This extra full moon is called a Blue Moon. The last full moon occurred ... on January 2nd this year and so we are able to squeeze another full moon in to this month on January 31st, making it a Blue Moon. But this one will be special as it is also a supermoon. The moon orbits around the Earth not in a true circle but in an

Super spring tide

The moon travels around the Earth at 2,288mph, which means it can travel roughly its own diameter every hour. In one orbit around the Earth it travels 1,423,000 miles. The time it takes to do one orbit around the Earth is 27.32 days and this is ... known as a sidereal month. The time between full moons is 29.53 days and is known as a synodic month. The difference in the two times is due to the fact that the Earth is also moving, but in relation to the Sun. Therefore the moon has to travel a ... is about 225,300 miles away while at its furthest point (apogee) it can be 251,900 miles away. If perigee occurs at the time of the full moon then it can appear about a third larger in the sky than if the full moon occurs at apogee. This event has



Look out for the partial lunar eclipse


We're in for a treat next this Tuesday evening, 16 July, when we will experience a partial eclipse of the moon. A lunar eclipse occurs when the Sun, Earth and the moon line up exactly and the moon passes through the Earth's shadow. If you were ... standing on the moon on Tuesday evening then you would see the Earth pass directly in front of the Sun. When it is the other way round with the moon passing in front of the Sun then we would have a solar eclipse of the Sun as we did last 2 July. During an ... eclipse of the Sun the moon and the Sun appear almost exactly the same size, but this is only an illusion, the Sun is 400 times bigger than the moon but by coincidence it just happens to be 400 times farther away. Because of this, the shadow cast by the



So close and yet...

KEN CAMPBELL the night sky

If the sky is clear on Sunday 7 May then there will be a very close conjunction between the moon and the planet Jupiter. They will be so close that they will almost touch and will make a fine view in binoculars or a small telescope. Jupiter will be ... just below the almost full moon. The moon travels around the Earth at an amazing 2,288mph and so can travel its own diameter in less than an hour. If you can observe the moon and Jupiter at intervals during the evening you will be amazed to see just ... how quickly the moon travels as it passes by Jupiter. The closest point that the two will come together will occur at around midnight. If you have a telescope then as you look at Jupiter you will be able to see its four largest moons. Callisto,
