The moon will be closest to Earth on Wednesday at 8:38 p.m., but it’s not yet visible. She doesn’t wake up until 10:30pm and goes to bed at 4:21am on Thursday. So it is visible to the naked eye for several hours in France. The phenomenon is nicknamed the “Super Thunder Moon” because it appears in July, which is one of the hottest and stormiest in this part of the world, TF1 information explains. The last supermoon of the year is scheduled for August 11.
