Today's moon will appear slightly bigger as it is February's full moon, known as a Super Snow Moon and will be the brightest of 2019. On the heels of China's first foray into the "dark" side of the Moon, SpaceIL and state-owned Israel Aerospace Industries has announced that it will be launching the first private spacecraft to land on the Earth's satellite.
"The full moon on February 19, 2019, counts as the most "super" of these full supermoons because it's the full moon that most closely aligns with perigee", EarthSky reports. The moon will be at its peak on Tuesday morning at 10:54 am but as it will not clearly visible during the daytime, it can be seen tonight.
The moon will be the most visible around 5pm.
In January there was a super blood moon, in which a super moon was combined with a total eclipse. According to timeanddate.com, "When a Full Moon takes place when the Moon is near its closest approach to Earth, it is called a Super Full Moon".
Cloud cover should be sparse enough across Illinois, Indiana and Ohio Monday evening and night to allow us to see the supermoon. Some other tribes called it a "hunger" moon as the harsh weather conditions were not suitable for hunting. Any bro who says that they saw a significantly bigger and lovely moon is lying. In fact, a supermoon is also likely in the month of March as well. 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. The full moon names corresponded with seasonal changes.
The third and farthest supermoon for 2019, the Worm Moon, will occur on March 21. The full moon moment (when the moon lies 180 degrees opposite the sun) will occur at 9.23pm.
