The 2019 Equinox Supermoon: online observation – 20 Mar. 2019
Next 20 Mar.2019, within very few hours, we will celebrate both the Vernal Equinox and the last Supermoon of 2019. This is a rare coincidence, adding something special to the show of one of the largest full Moon of the year. The Virtual Telescope will show the Supermoon live, while it will rise above the legendary monuments of Rome.
Having the full Moon so close to the Vernal equinox is relatively rare: last time, this happened 19 years ago, in 2000, next time will be in 2030. But neither of them was/will be a
Supermoon! So, the next full Moon will be very special, offering once again a wonderful opportunity to stay out there and look up to the sky.
The Virtual Telescope Project will bring to you the show of this Vernal Supermoon while it will rise above the unique skyline of Rome.
Observing the sky from the city is also extremely important to rise awareness about the light pollution issue. Showing the stunning beauty up there, feeding the desire to enjoy it more and better, understating why it is disappearing from our cities, it is possible to involve people and spontaneously promote responsible actions and behaviors in using artificial light. This event will be part of the “Dark Skies for All” Global Project of the International Astronomical Union.
Join our free, live webcast: you just need a computer/tablet/smartphone and a internet connection. We will admire our satellite rising above the breathtaking skyline of Rome, the Eternal City. It will be an unforgettable experience. Enjoy the largest SuperMoon of the year with us!
The online, free session is scheduled for 20 Mar. 2019, starting at 16:45 UT.
