The “thunder moon” appearing on July 3 (Vietnamese time) will initiate a series of consecutive super moons in 4 lunar months, enlarged in size thanks to the “double effect”.
According to the solar calendar There will be 2 Super Moons in AugustSO series of 4 consecutive supermoons will be super thunder moon 3-7, super red moon 2-8, super blue moon 31-8, super moon harvest 30-9astronomical tracking page EarthSky said.
Calculations by astrophysicist Andrew Espenak, former Goddard Space Flight Center expert – NASA Show These 4 full moons will appear with a distance ranging from only 357.344 – 361.934kmmuch closer than the average distance, so it looks bigger, so it’s called “supermoon”.

The orange to red-orange color can cover the next 4 super moons. (Pictured: The red and orange moon 16 was taken in Ho Chi Minh City on May 5 – Photo: ANH THU).
Supermoon is actually not an official term. It was first defined by astrologer Richard Nolle in 1979, referring to new or full moons located in the region closest to Earth in orbit. EarthSkу uses the new standard from TS Ɛspenak.
In particular, because the Earth has just passed, these Moons will often have a burnt color.
Western countries often call the full moon based on events that happened in that month or the nature of the Moon at that time. The August Moon is often called the Sturgeon Moon or the Red Moon because the orange-red color is more evident in the summer.
However, August also hosts the rare phenomenon of 2 full moons occurring in the same calendar month, so The August 31 supermoon — though it will always be red-orange to burnt orange — is still called “blue Moon”, word used to refer to the 2nd full moon in a month.
According to NASA, the phenomenon of the orange color of the Moon is due to the phenomenon of the moon hanging low in the sesame season, then we will see this satellite through the thicker atmosphere of the Earth, which has the effect of diffuse the light.
The orange color would have been lighter if, at that time, forest fires had released mist onto the planet.
it leads to the legend “mid-autumn orange moon” popular in many countries. But in fact the Moon still shines with its normal silvery white light, the orange color is due to the fact that we are looking through a prism – the atmosphere.
In Vietnam, the scorching orange moon has been appearing since May, as wildfires began to appear at home and abroad due to higher temperatures than every year.
Besides, hanging low moon – lowest at sunset – also creates an effect that makes it look bigger than usual, called “”. This illusion combined with the super moon promises to create a spectacular scene, a giant crimson thunder moon that you should expect at sunset on July 3.
