Super Moon, 13 June 2014 (Jyeshta Purnima)

Super Moon of 13 June 2014 (Jyeshta Purnima) is the biggest Moon in recent years. The full moon on Friday the 13th is a rarity. This Purnima hasn’t happened since October 2000. The Super Moon like 13th June won’t happen until August 2049, almost for 35 years.

It’s technically happening just after midnight – on Friday the 13th. The full moon is also what astronomers call a Super Moon.

Not only is the full moon on a superstitious date, it is also called a “Super Moon.” A Super Moon occurs at the time in the moon’s orbit around the earth when the moon is closest to Earth.

So not only will the moon be full, it will also look slightly larger. The other nice part of this sky event is you don’t have to wake up at an odd hour of the night to see it. The full moon will look the same Friday and Saturday night.

In Delhi, this Super Moon will be visible from 7.30 PM on 13 June till 5.28 AM on 14 June.
