The Super Snow Moon will last close to 7 hours. As the Moon orbits Earth, the distance between the two objects changes. Every year, we get 12 (or 13, sometimes) full moon. This close approach is called perigee by astronomers.

A crow sits atop the deer sculpture by Ludwig Habich on the roof of the art house in Stuttgart, Germany, in front of the nearly full moon, on February 18, 2019.

And it's also the biggest full moon supermoon of 2019. When this coincides with a full moon, it is known as a micromoon.

But that doesn't make this full moon any less fantastic to look at on a crisp winter evening, especially on the eve of humanity's 50th anniversary of landing men on the moon, as NASA scientist Mitzi Adams said in a recent blog post.

Dybala: Allegri lets me play where I want to

A supermoon occurs a few times a year - but it's not always at its absolute closest.

However, one would need to have a remarkably trained eye to notice the difference between each supermoon.

The Supermoon is visible all over the world with the best viewing time just after sunset but there are also a number of live streams of the event available. However, this event usually has lesser attention because this kind of moon is invisible from Earth.

During totality, the moon will look red because of sunlight scattering off Earth's atmosphere.

"As NASA and its commercial and global partners plan to return the moon over the next decade with a long-term continued presence, the list of moon walkers will surely include women, as well", Adams said.

Zahira Mohd Radzi said the phenomenon occurs when the Moon's position is the closest to the Earth (in its perigee) with a distance of 356,761km. Black Moon is a term used when there is no full moon or new moon in a month or there is an additional new moon that appears in a month or in a season. Another total lunar eclipse won't be sighted until May 2021. The snowfall averages for the Washington DC area for January and February are almost tied as the snowiest months of the year.

Skygazers were treated to a rare sight last night and this morning as a Super Snow Moon was in full illumination. If that happens, there's still the third and final supermoon of the year, which comes in exactly four weeks, on March 19, 2019. Given that it is a Super Moon today, it is being called a Super Snow Moon.

The snow moon becomes officially full on February 19, 2019, at 10:53 am EST (1553 GMT), and it will be about six hours past perigee.
