Tonight, the New Jersey moon will be at its fullest and will be pink. It will be the super-flower blood moon. It will be visible at 11 :32 p.m. Eastern Time, and it is the last full moon in winter. A full lunar eclipse was visible in New Jersey in January. However, this will be the last one.
New Jersey will experience two supermoons this year, the first on June 14th and the second on July 13th. The supermoon on July 13th was the largest of the year. The August 11th full moon will be at 90 perigee, which is its closest approach to Earth. The moon will be 224,569.1 miles away from earth.
The full moon calendar includes the first and last quarters, lunar rise/set, and percentage full Moons. These phases are described in detail. August 25 is the First Quarter Moon. It is at its highest illumination at 2:40 p.m. EDT. September 5th will see the Harvest Moon.
According to news sources, this full moon is the largest of 2009. It measures 186,300 miles in diameter. According to New Jersey’s weather website, meteor showers will peak during this time. The Moon will also be at perigee, meaning it will rise at exactly the same time as the sun or the earth.
New Jersey residents can also view the Draconid Meteor Shower on October 6th-7th. This meteor shower emits about ten shooting star per hour. The full moon is not going to interfere with the meteor shower, but it will still be visible. This shower is particularly bright in New Jersey, where the first-quarter moon is visible.
If you want to see the full moon, Jersey City will have a supermoon and a full moon. It will appear at 11:35 p.m. Eastern time. Both nights, the moon will be 98% full and 100% full. It will be slightly larger than normal. A lunar eclipse is also visible on May 26 from the West Coast of the United States.
