MOON APPEARING CLOSER TO SATURN ON 24 JULY AND JUPITER ON 26 JULY, 2021...VIRAL NEWS REPORT.
In Scientific terms
1) MOON IN CONJUNCTION WITH SATURN will occur on 24 JULY 2021
2) MOON IN CONJUNCTION WITH JUPITER will occur on 26 JULY 2021.
In simple words, the Appearance of one or more celestial bodies together in the sky is known as Conjunction. Interestingly though Moon & Planets appear near each other, in reality, they are separated by enormous distances.
Visibility - Opportunity to Use Moon to Spot Planets: Every month with help of the Moon 3-4 times we can spot planets. Like today on 24July Saturn would appear like a dim non-twinkling star-like object besides Moon. Similarly, on 26 July Jupiter can spot near Moon like a bright non-twinkling star-like object.
Importance? It's fact that the average Distance between Moon And Earth is 3,84,400km. Whereas the Distance between Moon and Saturn or Jupiter varies by millions of kilometers. But in spite of the enormous distance appearance of the Moon closer to Saturn (on 24 July) or Jupiter (on 26July) makes it easy for observers to identify or spot planets easy.
However, linking celestial events to natural events on earth or Social/political events of a country or individual looking for life is unscientific.
How exactly does coming together appear to happen?
We all know Moon goes around Earth. But an observer in his sky will see Moon in different phases (Example: Crescent Moon etc) every consecutive evening. And also, the observer would witness Moon at a new location in his sky in the background of a new set of stars or planets than the previous night.
The specialty of Buck Moon? Does it make any difference?
Scientifically speaking There is nothing special when Full Moons are called with different names. Such naming is a cultural or traditional practice. In India Full moons are known as Guru Purnima, Kartika Purnima etc.. Similarly in Western folklore Buck Moon, Pink Moon is the name given based on seasons.
Further additional Brightness or bigger appearance of Moon mainly depends on distance (perigee/apogee) of Moon to Earth at time of the full moon
