March 28: Moon-Venus conjunction forecast: at 09:50 GMT (4:50 a.m EST), the Moon will meet Venus. The conjunction will be out of the scope for telescopes and binoculars: the Moon will pass 6°40' to the south of Venus, which is too far to fit within the field of view of the optical devices. However, Venus will shine at a magnitude of -4.3, so both celestial bodies lying in the constellation Capricornus will be perfectly visible in the dawn sky for the naked eye.

Observed in Melbourne, the moon was south east of Venus at 4:49am on 29.03.2022. The crescent moon was 26 days old while Venus appeared almost a full disc ( when viewed at 100%). The pair was low on the horizon, and thus the moon looked golden.

The Planet Moon Venus Conjunction is a frequent occurrences in planetary association. Since both being fast moving planets where Venus take 23 days-2 months almost to pass a sign while Moon is fastest resides 2.5 almost in a zodiac sign. Moon is almost direct in motion whereas Venus goes retrograde in couple of years.

In astrology terms: Moon conjunct Venus natal makes you the most loving and caring of people. You are gentle, kind, and really affectionate. You love being in love so having a genuinely loving and harmonious relationship is important for your sense of well-being. You are popular and enjoy a rich social life because it is so easy for people to get along with you.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. It was on display at the Bunjil Place Plaza from Saturday 26 June to Sunday 4 July 2021, Narre Warren, Victoria, Australia.

The installation is a giant replica of the Earth’s Moon. Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. Several copies tour the world for temporary exhibitions, often accompanied by music. The helium balloon was made by Cameron Balloons, using ripstop material coated with urethane.

The Museum of the Moon was inspired by living in Bristol and noticing the huge tidal variation as the artist cycled over the Avon Cut each day.

The artwork has been created in partnership with the UK Space Agency, University of Bristol and The Association for Science and Discovery Centres.

“Supermoon” is the unofficial name given to full or new moons that happen when a moon reaches its closest point to earth, which makes it appear bigger and brighter.

“Different publications use slightly different thresholds for deciding which full moons qualify as supermoons, but for 2021 all agree the two full moons in April and May are supermoons,” NASA’s Gordon Johnston said.

According to PAGASA (the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration) the term pink supermoon is a foreign concoction: the pink refers to the colour of flowers in North America that usually bloom when a supermoon arrives.

At 6:29pm Eastern Standard Time in Victoria, Australia, the moon was already about 25 degrees above the horizon. It was not actually pink, but appeared rather yellowish to the naked eyes.
