Super snow moon brightens the sky

2019-03-21 14:53
The biggest and brightest supermoon of the year, known as the super snow moon illuminated the sky on Tuesday (February 19). The spectacle is the second of three supermoons to appear in the first three months of the year after the blood wolf moon of January 21 and preceding one expected on March 21. It is called the super snow moon because its appearance coincides with the months of snowfall in Europe and America, according to the Old Farmer's Almanac, a weather forecast guide. A supermoon is a full moon that occurs when the moon's orbit is closest to Earth making it appear larger than life.
