A Super Blood Moon is seen during a total lunar eclipse in Los Angeles California
The Super Blood Wolf Moon rises behind One World Trade Center in New York City on January 20. Since an optical illusion causes the moon to appear larger to us the closer it is to the horizon, moonrise will likely be the best time to snap a picture.
February 19 will see the second lunar spectacle in a supermoon trilogy.
The event was not fully visible in New Zealand, however the Super New Moon is likely to be as large and bright for us as it is will be to the US. The event will officially occur in the morning, but when the moon crosses the night sky - it will be brighter than it will at any point of the year, or even until 2026, according to Forbes.
It's called a supermoon when perigee coincides with the moon's full phase.
It was known as the Snow Moon because of the heavy snows that fall in this season (NOAA long-term monthly averages for the Washington, DC area show January and February almost tied as the snowiest months of the year).
USA announces new sanctions against Maduro officials
Guaido accuses Maduro of being a "usurper" over his controversial re-election a year ago in polls widely branded as fraudulent. He called for reinforced border security and dismissed the arriving "crumbs" as "rotten and contaminated food".
NASA predicts that this super moon, which is set to be seen tomorrow night, will be "biggest and brightest" of the year, following the Super Wolf Blood Moon last month.
The moon will technically reach peak fullness next Tuesday morning, February 19, 2019, at 10:54 a.m. EST, but won't be visible to most in the U.S.at that time. And, because 100 percent of the moon's surface will be illuminated by the sun, it will appear 30 percent bigger and 14 percent larger than normal, according to the site. Some other tribes called it a "hunger" moon as the harsh weather conditions were not suitable for hunting. The full moon names corresponded with seasonal changes.
Following this supermoon there will be one more on 21 March, after which you'll need to wait until early 2020 when the moon is once again closer to earth.
