Full moon 2022: Strawberry Supermoon to peak on June 14, check timings and other details


Full moon 2022: Skywatchers are in for a treat again as the next full moon, also known as the Strawberry Supermoon, will be at its peak on Tuesday (June 14, 2022). According to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the June full moon, also known as “Vat Purnima” in India, will appear opposite the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 7:52 am EDT (5:22 pm IST) .

“This will be late Monday night for the International Date Line West time zone, Tuesday for many of the time zones on Earth, and Wednesday morning from the Chatham Standard Time zone eastward to the International Date Line. The Moon will appear full for about three days centered on this time, from Sunday evening through Wednesday morning,” NASA said.

What is a supermoon?

A supermoon occurs when a full moon coincides with the Moon’s closest approach to Earth in its elliptical orbit, a point known as “perigee”. During every 27-day orbit around Earth, the Moon reaches both its perigee, about 2,26,000 miles from Earth, and its farthest point, or apogee, about 2,51,000 miles from Earth.

In this phase, the Moon looks larger and brighter than usual.

Supermoons only appear three to four times a year, and always happen consecutively.

Strawberry supermoon

The term “supermoon” was coined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979. Some Native American tribes called this full moon the “Strawberry Moon” because it signaled a time for gathering ripening strawberries and other fruits.

For Americans, the Strawberry Moon marks the last full Moon of spring or the first Full Moon of summer.

Vat Purnima 2022

For Hindus, this is known as “Vat Purnima”. During the three days of this full moon, married women show their love for their husbands by tying a ceremonial thread around a banyan tree. The celebration, notably, is based on the legend of Savitri and Satyavan.
