A super moon rises in the sky in Vina del Mar, Chile on April 7, 2020. The moon will also appear to be full once again Thursday Night into Friday Morning, with similarly pristine viewing conditions again expected.
The moon will be at its official full phase at 3:45 a.m. on May 7, if you want to stay up that late, or get up that early.
The exciting fact about Supermoons is that the lunar surface seems closer to the Earth, given its changing orbit.
A super flower moon will rise over Australia on Thursday evening. The phrase was coined in 1979, according to NASA.
This supermoon is also known as the Full Milk Moon, the Full Flower Moon or the Full Corn Planting Moon.
But the cultural significance of the moon has been huge in recent weeks, he said.
"However, astronomers regard the moon as full at a precisely defined instant, when the Moon is exactly 180 degrees opposite the sun in ecliptic longitude".
Contrary to a classic full moon, the supermoon is around 14% bigger and 30% brighter but the difference can be hard to spot to human eye and is best appreciated via a telescope.
NASA explained: "Going by the seasons, as the second full Moon of spring, the Native American tribes of the northeastern United States called this the Flower Moon, as flowers are abundant this time of year in most of these areas".
Clear skies are forecast tonight in Sydney, Melbourne and Darwin, giving residents the best chance to see the super flower moon throughout the night.
Two meteor showers, the Eta-Aquariids and the Eta-Lyrids, also peak in early May, although NASA notes that the light of the almost full moon will interfere with visibility.
