For those unfamiliar with supermoons, this means that the Earth’s natural satellite is entering its complete lunar phase (closing its distance from Earth).
When the moon enters the so-called supermoon phase, it will appear larger than usual since it is at its closest distance from the planet.
Once the supermoon is up in the sky, you can expect more extreme high and low tides in the sea.

Space researchers added that the perigee distance of the supermoon would be around 221,994 miles away from Earth. Now, what can visually expect from the upcoming supermoon?
Experts stated that supermoons are commonly around 14% larger than the normal full moons. When it comes to the emitted light, they are estimated to be roughly 30% brighter.
But, these numbers are expected to be higher since the supermoon on July 13 will be the largest one. Since this is the case, you don’t really need to use a DSLR or other advanced cam devices just to take photos.
The smartphone you are using is already more than enough to take Instagrammable supermoon images. Now, here are some tips you can follow to achieve some IG-worthy moon photos.
How To Capture Instagrammable Moon Photos
CBC reported that taking Instagrammable moon photos can be done using only your smartphone.
If you are using an Android, you can rely on third-party camera apps that already have built-in filters, such as Yamera (available for iOS and Android).
On the other hand, if your smartphone already has advanced camera specs, you can rely on Instagram’s actual filters to enhance your captured moon images.
If your device already has the Pro Mode feature, just activate it and utilize the features it offers, such as the manual focus, adjustable ISO, as well as its grid lines.
Aside from this, it is also recommended to use a tripod since you will be taking photos of the supermoon. Remember, no one likes to have blurry images while the shutter speed is being adjusted.
Previously, the Red Moon lunar eclipse happened.
On the other hand, the Atacama desert saw the astonishing moon kissing the sunset.
