Some experts also call this full moon as a supermoon and thus the upcoming celestial sight of the moon will be first in a series of supermoons in 2020, with three more scheduled for March, April and May.

A supermoon would be the expression used to refer to a complete moon which appears when the Moon's orbit is nearest to Earth. Here the golden orb rises over the Santa Ynez Range at 5:33 PM on February 9, 2020.

The night skies will be more lit up over Door and Kewaunee counties as the Snow Moon shines this weekend.

This year's "Snow Moon" also happens to coincide with a "supermoon", making the event all the more delightful to see. But what is the February Snow Moon and how is it likely to affect you?

However, others claim that a supermoon only occurs when the centre of the moon is less than 223,694 miles (360,000 kilometres) from the centre of Earth.

A little over a year ago, the the brightest supermoon of 2019 it shone in the sky Last September, there was a rare moon that was not a supermoon, but it was news for being a nationwide full moon that was visible in the creepy date of friday the 13th.

Astronomers advise photographers and sky watchers to download applications and maps to track the progress of the moon across the sky to facilitate sightings.

And it will be officially full at 10.53 a.m. EST according to NASA's Skycal.


The February full moon is no exception.

And for star enthusiasts, there are more things to see besides the moon this weekend.

Based on NASA, the Moon will look full for nearly 3 days beginning Friday evening to Monday afternoon, and it is going to be wholly full on Sunday, February 9 at two:33am EST.
