A Super Full Moon To Surface The Skies on This Date

A super moon is said to surface the skies on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. It is said to be the biggest and the brightest supermoon of the year as it will be visible in the UAE

“The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth, as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated,” the Dubai Astronomy Group said.

“This full moon was known by early Native American tribes as the ‘Full Flower Moon’ because this was the time of year when spring flowers appeared in abundance. It has also been known as the ‘Full Corn Planting Moon’ and the ‘Milk Moon’.”

This supermoon will be the second of three appearing this year, with some parts of the world lucky enough to witness a total lunar eclipse. 

Dubai Astronomy Group usually live-streams the event on its YouTube channel, so be sure to check that out if you can’t see the moon from home.

Each full moon has its own individual name, for example in February we saw the Snow Moon. The Snow Moon gets its name as it occurs when there is normally a lot of snow on the ground.

Next was the Worm Moon, which you might remember seeing in March. This one got its name as during this time of year, when temperatures begin to increase, farmers at the Farmers Almanac noticed worms emerging from the ground.
