Super snow moon set to light up the sky TONIGHT with biggest and brightest moon of the year
19 February 2019, 15:04
Tonight the UK will be treated to the biggest and brightest full moon of 2019.
On Tuesday 19 February the world will be treated to a stunning full moon.
The super snow moon will be the biggest and brightest of 2019, as the moon’s orbit is expected to be the closest to Earth of the year – 221,681 miles (356,761 kilometers) away, to be specific.
The moon will appear around 10 per cent bigger than a normal full moon.
So when can you see the moon?
At 9:06am on Tuesday the moon will be the closest to the earth.
However, it will be its fullest at 3:53pm.
Obviously, none of that matters if you can’t see it.
To get the best glimpse of the super snow moon, take a look up into the skies around 5:11 at sunset when the moon will be the most visible.
The moon is expected to still be bright and bold into the evening as well.
