Star Gazers and Moon Lovers, get ready to bask in the light of this year’s biggest and brightest full moon. Weather permitting, New Yorkers will enjoy a full night of this delightful sight on 20 February, rising at 19h02 and setting at 07h35.  Regardless of whether this special moon is visible from where you happen to be, enjoy!

Following January’s spectacular Super Blood Wolf Moon, the Super Snow Moon on Tuesday, 19 February won’t have a different colour but will definitely be the biggest and brightest full moon of the year.

 

Called the Snow Moon as it often appears at a time when there is heavy snowfall in the Northern Hemisphere. The impressive size of this Super Moon is due to it being at its closest orbit to Earth, according to NASA: “Its closest point is the perigee, which is an average distance of about 226,000 miles (363,300 kilometers) from Earth.”

It’s nearly impossible to compare the apparent size of the supermoon with a micromoon from memory, but when seen side-by-side as in this graphic, it becomes clear.

According to the American Old Farmer’s Almanac, “The Full Moon Names we use in The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from Native American tribes, Colonial Americans, or other traditional North American names passed down through generations. (Note that each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred.)” For more interesting facts and details on the traditional full moon names, click here.
