Scientist Noah Petro of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland stressed that the important thing is to stay safe by observing the Moon amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“If it’s not safe to get out … no problem,” said Petro. “Get out next month or when it’s safe again. Take advantage of the Moon filled as an excuse to go out and start observing the Moon“
“Use this as an opportunity not to physically distance yourself, but to connect emotionally with something that is physically far from us,” he added.
Over the next few months there will be a series of supermoons, so if anyone misses this moon show, they will be able to watch the next one on May 7.
