Vietnamese astronomy lovers had the opportunity to see a big and brilliant supermoon last night and early this morning. It is the biggest supermoon that can be observed in 2022.
The Hanoi Astronomical Society (HAS) said that the supermoon could be observed from Wednesday afternoon when it was only 352,000km from the Earth, about 33km closer than normal. At that distance, the moon appears larger and brighter than usual.
According to HAS, the full moon phase occurred at 1:38am, July 14 (Việt Nam time), when the moon was in a pulsating position with regards to the Sun, so the entire moon's surface was illuminated.

Meanwhile, according to NASA, at 5pm on July 13 (Việt Nam time), the moon approached the closest point to the Earth in 2022, a distance of 357,264 km. The full moon appeared from 9:38pm.
Here are some photos of the supermoon observed in the Hà Nội sky on Wednesday night, captured by our reporters Trần Hoàng Nam and Thanh Tùng:
HCM City expects to build about 35,000 social housing units with 2.5 million square metres of floor space in 2021-2025, and nearly 58,000 units with a floor space of 4.08 million square metres by 2030.
After a quiet period due to COVID, Bến Thành Market is on the up again. Foreign tourists are coming back to this iconic destination in HCM City, bringing fresh hopes for traders, who wish to be back on their feet soon after a tough time.
The People’s Court of Hà Nội on Tuesday sentenced three women and one man to a total of 18 years in prison for illegally transporting and trading 984kg of pangolin scales, one of the largest cases of wildlife trading detected so far in Việt Nam.
