2019’s biggest supermoon to light up the sky

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.

A full snow moon came out in all its "supermoon" splendor Monday night, much to the delight of Bay Area skywatchers.

Other common names for February's full moon are the Bony Moon, Hunger Moon and Little Famine Moon, according to the almanac.

Get ready for the biggest supermoon of the year.

Woman, 3 children dead after shooting at MI home
She added someone had notified police after discovering the bodies in Mile Road shortly after 4pm, on Monday (9pm GMT). The sheriff's department has not released the identities of the victims and is waiting for autopsies to be completed.

The possibility of seeing the Super Snow Moon is pretty big, with the weather forecast now not completely against us and a mix of clear skies and clouds expected. This causes the moon to appear bigger and brighter in the night sky.

According to NASA, to watch tonight's supermoon, or any full moon, simply look for the moon to rise in the east as the sun sets in the west.

In a Supermoon phenomena, not only is there a full moon, but the Earth's satellite is at the closest point in its orbit around the planet. The name Snow Moon was given due to the heavy snowfall which occurred in the same season as this Moon. This February's Super Moon's centre will be 356.846 kilometres from the Earth's.

Tuesday's Super Snow Moon will be the second of three projected supermoons in 2019, with the third coming in March. It'll then be at its fullest at 3.53pm, but again it'll still be light out so won't be at its brightest.

The more northern tribes of the north eastern United States knew it as the Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signalled the end of winter.

"So I think [the hype] is a bit of a mixture between history and people loving the moon and people also wanting an excuse to go and look up at the skies". The moon is also going to be 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter than usual.

Adams adds that you can check the effect by holding a coin at arm's length so it covers the moon.
