The Moon, which is in the phase of a full moon in the Arab world sky, will be illuminated with 99.7% sunlight tomorrow, Friday, the fourth day of Eid-al-Adha, and the third day of Teşrin. during the night.

The Jeddah Astronomical Society stated that the moon will appear from the southeast horizon at sunset, its apparent size will be large when close to the horizon and its color is reddish-orange, its path in the night sky will resemble a road. The January sun is in the daytime sky, so the moon will never be observed in the ball’s far northern regions of Earth, because the July full moon is too far south to be seen on the sky’s dome, like the January sun. from northern latitudes.

The association added on its official Facebook page that the moon will tilt south, reaching its highest point in the sky at about midnight, and set in the southwest horizon with Saturday sunrise.

In general, it can be said that the moon is full during the night, but scientifically we call it a full moon when it is 180 degrees opposite the sun, and it will be on the morning of Saturday, July 24th. At 05:36 Saudi time (02:36 GMT), its orbit around Earth will be cut in half during the Moon.

And he went on: This time of the month is ideal for viewing radioactive craters on the moon’s surface with binoculars or a small telescope, unlike the rest of the terrain, which appears flat as the entire moon falls in sunlight. These craters are believed to have just formed, and the “Tikho” crater is thought to be the brightest crater.

In the coming nights, the moon will rise about an hour late each day, and a few days later it will only be visible in the dawn and early morning sky, then after some time it will reach its last quarter. week of the full moon phase.
