The last supermoon in 2021 will be seen Thursday night on July 24 and UAE stargazers will be able to catch a glimpse.

“The Maine Farmer's Almanac first published ‘Indian’ names for the full moons in the 1930s,” Nasa said.

“According to this almanac, as the full moon in June and the last full moon of spring, the Algonquin tribes called this the Strawberry Moon.

"The name comes from the relatively short season for harvesting strawberries in the north-eastern United States.”

The first supermoon of the year was in April and appeared 7% bigger and 14% brighter than a regular moon. The second appeared in May and was the biggest and brightest one of the year.

A supermoon occurs when the Moon is at its closest point to Earth in its orbit and appears larger than normal.
