“As of now, we can say nga cloudless atong atmosphere ana nga time and wa ta ga expect nga dili siya makita by then,” she said.
(As of now we can say that the atmosphere for later will be cloudless so we are not expecting that it will not be visible by then.)
Delfin said the “supermoon” will start to show at 5:15 pm on Tuesday and will reach its maximum visibility at Wednesday dawn.
