You might want to arrange a picnic or a family day out on the 26th of both April and May to catch a glimpse of one of the most exciting celestial events, the appearance of the Super Pink Moon. It'll be closest to the earth during the full moon phase making it appear gigantic. The big and bright supermoon is about 15% brighter and 7% bigger than the regular full moon, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac

It would be a shame if you missed these special events! But fret not, we’ve got you covered! Here are telescopes and binoculars under $150 to make sure you don't miss these rare supermoon sightings -- the Super Pink Moon and the Super Flower Moon Eclipse.

The microscope kit included is just a bonus and contains glass slides, collection vials and tweezers. This is also perfect for a geeky science night when the supermoon arrives.
