How to Watch the Super Snow Moon, the Biggest Supermoon of 2019

The August 2014 Supermoon

With January came the rare phenomenon that was a Super Blood Wolf Moon, and now February is set to deliver a treat in the form of another supermoon.

The term gives preference to the geometric alignment of Sun-Earth-Moon and allows the occurrence of perigee into a wider time period than the actual instant of perigee (up to about two weeks, which is nearly half of the Moon's orbit).

According to The Old Farmer's Almanac, February full moons were nicknamed "snow" by Native American tribes because of the heavy amount of snowfall during the month. This is just an illusion - our brain is interpreting that the moon is closer because of its orbit and the sun's brightness reflecting off it.

Instead, you'll need to wait until after the moon rises at 5.11pm.

A supermoon occurs a few times a year - but it's not always at its absolute closest. According to the website Time and Date, moonset in Eureka will occur at 7:22 a.m. Tuesday - with the full moon reached at 7: 53 a.m. - and rise at 6:17 p.m.

As the moon orbits in an ellipse its closest point - the perigee - will come very close to earth.

Hopefully I can find it here in the last couple rounds. "I didn't have four three-putts out there". He hit 14 of 18 greens in regulation and moved up from a tie for 52nd when the third round began.

On February 19, the moon will be 221,734 miles from Earth, as per EarthSky.

2019 is predicted to see 3 consecutive supermoon's.

Super Moons can appear 30 percent brighter and up to 14 percent larger than regular Full Moons, according to Space.com.

Weather permitting, the massive astronomical spectacle should be visible for two or three days either side of Wednesday morning, with early Wednesday morning being the biggest, brightest point. January's coincided with a total lunar eclipse-an event where the moon passes directly through Earth's shadow. The average distance is about 363,300 kilometers.

The third and final supermoon of the year will take place on March 20, 2019 (but, again, it won't be as big as the February one).
