Thursday, April 14, 2022 at 12:44 – This year, April is the special occasion for the full moon. The calendar does not coincide with the lunar cycle.
Keep in mind that the 16th full moon of April occurs at 2:55 pm, the date being determined according to the lunar cycle after the spring equinox. From Friday morning, it looks like the Quebec sky is overcast, which is until Monday. On Saturday, you can watch the moon rise at 7:46 pm, allowing the sky to clear. The next day, it would set at 6:37 in the morning.
The big moon
The next full moon will be big, but not supermoon. The distance from the Earth’s natural satellite is 365,142 kilometers. However, more than 24 hours elapse between the moment of Perigee and the moment of Plenititude. In 2022, the next will appear on June 14th and July 13th. At the time of these events, the Moon was 357,433 and 357,263 kilometers from our planet, respectively.
Small problem …
The lunar phases in April have this uniqueness: the new moon on the 1st and the second on the 30th. The situation is complicated for its name. Typically, the red moon occurs between the April new moon and the May new moon. So the real redhead will change after May. The adage “The red moon burns young shoots” means that in late April or early May, the buds turn red under the influence of cold.
