MANILA, Philippines — Hope for clear skies as the full moon on Tuesday (April 27) will be a supermoon, according to Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).

The state weather bureau said the moon will appear bigger and brighter than a regular full moon during its peak from 11:22 to 11:32 p.m.

The full moon will have a perigee distance of 357,378 kilometers (km) away from Earth, which is the “closest that the moon comes to the earth in its elliptic orbit.”

PAGASA said the term ‘supermoon’, popularized by astrologer Richard Nolle, is astrological in origin and has no precise astronomical definition. AAC
