ABOUT THE SNOW MOON
February’s full Moon peaks on Tuesday, February 19, at 10:53 A.M. EST, but will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer.
It will also be a so-called “super moon,” which means the Moon is at its closest point in its orbit to Earth.
In fact, the February’s full Moon is the nearest, largest, and brightest full Moon of the year! Technically, it’s the second of three super moons to occur in 2019 (January, February, March).
Do super moons truly appear brighter?
Technically, yes. Practically, it depends on your point of comparison. The supermoon’s diameter is indeed about 7% greater than an ordinary full Moon and 14% greater than a full Moon when it’s at its furthest point in its orbit to Earth (a “micromoon”).
And a supermoon exceeds the brightness of an ordinary Moon by 15%! When compared to a micromoon, the supermoon is 30% brighter!Learn what defines a supermoon here
