The Qatar Calendar House announced the full moon of the blessed month of Ramadan this year will be completely different as the full moon this year, known as the "supermoon", will appear approximately 14% larger than the usual full moon, and 30% more luminous.
This is because it's a bit closer to the earth about 358,000km from the centre of the earth. Dr Beshir Marzouk, astronomer at the Qatar Calendar House, said that residents of Qatar can enjoy seeing and observing the supermoon phenomenon with the naked eye from evening of Monday, Ramadan 14, 1442 AH, corresponding to April 26, 2021 until just before Tuesday's sunrise, noting that the time of the moonrise over the sky of Qatar will be at 5:22pm on Monday, and it will set at 5:10am the next day in Doha local time.
