Super Snow Moon 2020
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
The Super Snow Moon, the second full moon of winter, is an appropriate name and will be very impressive tonight and tomorrow/Sunday night. Super is given to a new or full moon at the time of the month when the moon is closest to the Earth. The moon would appear bigger and brighter than normal (about 14% bigger and 30% brighter, according to NASA). The moon will appear full for most of the weekend but will reach official fullness on Sunday, February 9, 2020, at 2:33 am EST (1:33am, CST). Snow comes from Native American tradition that tied the names of full moons to the season. February’s full moon is also known as the Snow Moon, Storm Moon, or Hunger Moon.
Skywatchers will soon get a chance to see the snow moon, which will be one of the largest full moons of this year when it lights up the night sky on Feb. 8 and 9. The February full moon will reach its peak at 2:33 a.m. EST on Sunday, Feb. 9, according to NASA. “For the best view of this Moon, look for it on the night of Saturday, February 8 it will rise in the east and reach its highest point in the sky around midnight,” explains the Old Farmer’s Almanac. Some experts also describe the forthcoming full moon as a supermoon, in the video “Snow moon on deck: Get set for one of the largest full moons of 2020“, below:
