What Is Super Flower Moon 2020?

A supermoon is one of the common occurrences and happens when the Moon's orbit is closer to Earth. As this brings the Moon closer to the Earth, it appears much larger and brighter than other full moon occurrences. Prior to this Super Flower Moon, another supermoon appeared in April, called the Super Pink Moon.

This brings us to the queer names for various supermoons. Traditionally, these celestial occurrences have been named after Native American seasons, flowers, and regions that were first published in the Maine Farmer's Almanac. According to this, Algonquin tribes in North America called the May full moon as the Flower Moon due to the abundance of flowers as its generally the Spring season.
