Super Moon as seen from Kathmandu

Posted by: sachink

A supermoon is a new or full moon that happens to coincide with a close approach of the moon to the earth. Saturday’s full moon was the closest it has been to Earth in 18 years, according to

The distance between the Earth and the moon during the event was about 221,567 miles, as compared to the average distance of 238,000 miles, according to

The supermoon phenomenon was awaited with bated breath by avid moon watchers, astronomy enthusiasts and astrologers who had prophesied calamities on the occasion. The celestial event has passed without causing anything untoward, but left in its trail spectacular visuals of the ‘largest’ moon in almost 20 years.

These are some pictures of Super Moon as seen from Kathmandu.

    @anjan : Actually the color of the moon was changing as the sky got darker and it was only after 8.30 or so the color somewhat remained stable… :)
