According to scientists, this phenomenon occurs when Moon approaches 10 percent or closer than it usually does on its orbit around the Earth.

Its name is related to the flowering, in times of boreal spring, of the pink moss or flowering flox existing in the northern hemisphere.

The April full moon is also known in various countries in Latin America and the Caribbean as the ‘flower moon’, ‘spring moon’ or ‘Easter moon’, and is revered by ancestral cultures.

Cubans will be able to watch that natural phenomenon again on Tuesday night and until dawn.

There will be another two supermoons in the remainder of the year: the Flower Moon (May 26) and the Strawberry Moon(June 24).

After more than a year marked by the fight against Covid-19, many people find in astronomical events a way to avoid this situation for a few moments and enjoy the wonders of the universe.
