A series of this year’s Supermoons began on March 9 with Super Worm Moon and culminated on April 7 with Super Pink Moon. In May, sky gazers will have a chance to see the last Supermoon of 2020. Here’s all you need to know to enjoy the Full Moon in May.
When is the Full Moon in May 2020? How to see it?
The Full Moon, also Supermoon and Flower Moon, occurs on Thursday, May 7, 2020, at 10:45 UTC (6:45 a.m. EDT). For observers from Earth, it will appear full to the eye for about three days around this time. Plan your observations on the nights of May 6 and 7 to get the best view of the spectacular Full Super Moon. Our natural satellite will shine brightly among the stars of the constellation Libra, offering an amazing photo opportunity.

Last Supermoon of 2020
The Full Moon in May will be the last of the three Supermoons to take place this year, also the 3rd-closest and the 3rd-largest year’s Full Moon. On May 7, its distance from Earth will be 361,184 km, which is further away than the March and April Moons were. Although Supermoons appear about 7% larger and about 15% brighter in the night sky than typical Full Moons, this difference is hard to see with the naked eye of a casual observer.
