The Jeddah astronomer also said that this event would be an ideal opportunity to photograph, as the moment the moon lies in an angle of 180 degrees from the sun, which will occur on Tuesday morning at 06:31 KSA (03: 31 hours) AM GMT) and will be cut in a semicircle during the month of Ramadan, followed by its arrival at perihelion point (the closest point in orbit to Earth) around 12 hours at 18:22 hours KSA 22 hours GMT).
It is reported that this phenomenon of the moon is called the “giant moon”, where the distance between the center of the moon and the center of the earth is within 362,146 km, a term that refers to the scientific name (perihelion moon).
The moon will appear with sunset and will be covered with a reddish or orange color, due to dust and other plankton in the atmosphere around the earth, which scatter the white light in it, the colors of the blue spectrum scattered and remains the colors of the red spectrum we see.
But after it rises and goes away from the horizon, it will appear in the usual silvery-white color and this happens every month, and it will decorate the air all night until it sets with the sunrise of Tuesday.
