On Monday, the ‘Supermoon’ will make its appearance, as the moon will be at its closest point relative to the Earth for the first time in 68 years.
The state weather bureau PAGASA released an advisory statement that the moon will reach the perigee or its closest point to Earth at 7:21 p.m., almost two hours and 31 minutes before going full moon at 9:52 p.m.
"This means we’ll be seeing a closer and larger apparent diameter moon this year – a supermoon!" PAGASA said.
The last and Supermoon appeared 68 years ago, dated January 26, 1948.
PAGASA said that it will not happen again until 2034.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) said that during the appearance of the Supermoon, the moon will be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter, although its brightness can be easily covered by clouds or the competing glare of urban lights.
