Supermoon 2019: Full moon to be visible in United Kingdom tomorrow

Supermoon 2019: Full moon to be visible in United Kingdom tomorrow

The term "snow moon" is the historic name given to the second full moon of winter by certain Native American tribes in the USA, according to NASA.

Stargazers in search of their next lunar fix are gonna be in for a treat next week, as a "super snow moon" is forecast to be the biggest and brightest full moon of 2019.

Good news for sky watchers and selenophiles, the next full moon is set to be the biggest and brightest of the year, according to NASA. the "super snow moon" as it is being called, will cross the skies next Tuesday on February 19.

"In addition, full moons during Northern Hemisphere winters tend to be brighter, because the Earth and moon are closer to the sun and because the full moon rides higher in the sky", according to NASA.

A "supermoon" is when a moon is simultaneously full and at its perigee, the point in its orbit when it is closest to Earth.




The Full Snow Moon is the second of three supermoons we'll witness this year. The Moon could appear up to 14 percent larger and 30 percent brighter than usual, so get your phones out for the spectacular photos. If you missed January's "Super Blood Wolf Moon" this grand spectacle will make up for it. Some other nicknames for it are the Storm Moon, Hunger Moon and Bone Moon.

The Super Snow Moon will peak on 19 February 2019 at 21:23 pm. However, the moon will look its biggest and brightest at 6:55 a.m. EST (hence the aforementioned early-morning wake-up call).

Observers can get the best view of the supermoon at moonrise, which happens around 7.30pm next Tuesday, said a Science Centre Singapore (SCS) spokesperson on Friday.

The moon will appear even bigger at the horizon, but don't be fooled by the optical illusion.

Incidentally, the weather looks pretty mixed over the next few days, so it's still a lottery as to whether you'll actually see this special moon. "The full moon always rises at sunset". The next full moon, on March 21, will also be a supermoon - and the final one for this year.
