Watch February's super snow moon, year's brightest

London United Kingdom. The super blue blood moon is a rare combination of a supermoon a blood moon and a blue moon all simultaneously occuring. (Ph

A supermoon is a phenomena that occurs when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth making it appear full, bright, and larger than life.

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

Super snow moon was given this name because the full moon in February is known as the "full snow moon" among Native American tribes. Technically speaking, the moon will hit its peak at 10:54 a.m. ET Tuesday morning, but it won't be visible at that time because it will be daylight.

Cousins Winzel and Cedrick Olorvida urged their other cousins to look at the skies on Tuesday night.

'I think sunset is the best time to see as it offers another element of a moon illusion, when it appears biggest because it's closest to the horizon, ' Mr Dew told Daily Mail Australia.

Meghan Markle jets to NY for secret baby shower with friends
Once she returns home again later this week, Meghan will then head to Morocco with Harry for an official two-day visit. In the letter, which has since been published and publicly scrutinised, Meghan accused her dad of breaking her heart.

According to Metservice meteorologist Tui McInnes, Auckland, Marlborough, Wellington and Nelson were expected to be the best locations to see the moon. But when the full moon arrived at an exceptionally close perigee (within 203 kms) on March 19, 2011, people believed him. We won't get a chance to see it, however, until around 5.11pm. The next supermoon will be on March 21, but with the moon at an orbital distance 3926 km greater than today.

On average, supermoons only appear about once every 14 months, according to National Geographic. This will be the biggest and brightest moon of 2019.

"But the moon energy is still potent and powerful", said Snow Owl, who's waiting for the seven Fridays before the Holy Week in April for the annual "tang-alap", or "the gathering of herbs". "The moon is one of the few celestial objects - along with the sun - that hasn't quite been drowned out by rampant and excessive light pollution due to the conversion to bluer LED lamps". Not to worry, the Virtual Telescope live stream will offer video of the super snow moon. There won't be another as close to the Earth until 2026.

The remaining full moons of the year will each become smaller than the previous month, before growing again from September onwards.

It will be the biggest supermoon of the year.
