Skygazers will be treated to the "super snow moon", on february 19, the largest supermoon of 2019.

Although closer to the Earth, the February 19 supermoon will not be as colorful as last month's "super blood Moon" eclipse that saw the Earth 's natural satellite turn a stunning shade of red.

The moon's orbit is not perfectly circular.

The supermoon will occur during this full moon because it will be closest in its orbit to Earth.

The Snowmoon will reach its peak at 10:54 a.m EST in the U.S when it will be visible to most of the citizens in Northern America. We've got you covered below.

According to the "Old Farmer's Almanac" published in 1792, the February moon was called Snow Moon moniker "due to the typically heavy snowfall of February". With clear skies tonight, you will have ample opportunity to check out the moon looking a little bigger and brighter. However, the moon will not be as big as the super snow moon event and will be referred to as the Super Worm Moon.

Now, behold the super snow moon, which is expected to be the biggest supermoon of the year.

"It was awesome", said 7-year-old Cedrick, a second grade pupil who is interested in astronomy.

At 9:06am on Tuesday the moon will be the closest to the earth.

Some residents here gathered to watch the rise of February's full moon, the largest and brightest supermoon of 2019.

The supermoon will coincide with the annual Lantern Festival - or Chap Goh Meh - which marks the end of the 15-day Chinese New Year celebrations.

And from then on, each full moon for the next seven months will be farther away than the previous one. The next supermoon will be on March 21, but with the moon at an orbital distance 3926 km greater than today.

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 moon rises over the Parthenon on the ancient Acropolis Hill in Athens, Greece, Tuesday, Feb. 19, 2019.
