Stargazers will enjoy a stunning sight as a rare “super snow moon” is set to appear in the night sky. It’s the second of three supermoons to light up the skies this year, following the Super Blood Wolf Moon that took place on January 21.
The full moons in February are called “snow moons.” But the upcoming supermoon will be known as the “super snow moon.” The super snow moon will appear on Tuesday, February 19 and will be the largest and brightest full moon of 2019.
Although the moon is going to be on its fullest on Tuesday morning, it is visible from Sunday to Tuesday evening around the world. The super snow moon will be 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than the norm.
The best time to catch the super snow moon will be at 10:54 am EST, Tuesday, February 19, when it reaches its peak. However, it won’t be visible to most US areas.
For places where the super snow moon is visible, the best part to take a snap is after “moonrise,” as it is closer to the horizon, making it a lot bigger and brighter.
The Moon will rise in the east, and the next time it gets closer to the Earth than this one will be in 2026, so you really don’t want to miss it!
A supermoon is a full moon that happens when the moon is at its nearest point to Earth in its month to month elliptical orbit around our planet. The supermoons seem bigger and more splendid than standard full moons in view of the closeness to Earth.
This year’s third supermoon is called the “Full Worm Moon.” It is going to be the final one in 2019 and it will appear on March 20, which is the same date as the spring equinox. The last time this coincidence happened was in 1981.
