May Flower Supermoon

Full Flower Moon on May 26th was the second (and last) supermoon of 2021. Supermoons appear larger and brighter than usual Full Moons: the May supermoon was 14 percent larger 30 percent brighter.

The first lunar eclipse of the 2021 that took place on that day was not visible in the UAE.

The May supermoon is called “Flower” because of spring time in the Northern Hemisphere:  warm weather and blooming flowers. It is also known as the Corn Planting Moon the Milk Moon and the Mother’s Moon.
