Super Snow Moon 2019: When to see February’s supermoon

  • How to See February's 'Super Snow Moon' on Feb. 19

The super snow moon will reach its closest point of 2019 early tomorrow morning, being only 221,681 miles from Earth (compared to its average 238k distance).

In the United Kingdom, the moon will be closest to earth at 9.06am, but at that time you probably won't be able to see it as the sun will be up.

The Cherokee referred to it as the "Bone Moon" as it was the time of the year when food was so scarce that people nibbled on bones and drank bone marrow soup.

According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the February moon was given the "Snow Moon" moniker "due to the typically heavy snowfall of February".

This month's full moon is also known as a "snow moon". Unlike January's super blood wolf moon eclipse, this supermoon will not appear blood orange in color.

The first supermoon of the year happened on January 21, paving the way for tomorrow's brightest supermoon of the year.

A full moon occurs every month when we can see the moon in its entirety.

The best time to see it will be at moonrise, between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. While it won't be at its fullest, you can catch the jaw-dropping sights starting on Sunday, February 17.

Either way, it's well worth braving the cold and steeping outside for a quick look when you know there's a supermoon hanging about.

The last time these two events aligned was 19 years ago in March 2000. You can choose to be an unapproachable elitist snob who poo-poos the whole notion of calling any Moon "super". Some other tribes called it a "hunger" moon as the harsh weather conditions were not suitable for hunting.

It'll appear especially large just as it rises above the horizon thanks to "moon illusion" where the brain thinks the moon is bigger than it really is given its location.
