About Supermoon or ‘Pink’ Supermoon
An astrologer named Richard Nolle created the term “supermoon” was created in the year 1979 to name this wonderful phenomenon. The name “supermoon” was given to this beautiful phenomenon to describe the optical effect also called the moon illusion, where the full moon seems to look very massive when mounting behind distant objects on the horizon. There are many people who believe that Supermoon gets the ‘Pink’ Supermoon because of its pinkish hue but that is not the case as the moon doesn’t look pink on this day.
