Brightest Moon Of 2019 To Light Up Sky Tonight
Whether you call it a Hunger Moon, Super Moon or a Super Snow Moon, tonight's sky will be lit up with the brightest moon of 2019 and peak visible hours are on the way!
According to Time.com, the moon will technically reach it's full peak tomorrow morning, Feb. 19, 2019, just before 11 a.m. EST but won’t be visible to most of us at that time. Instead, you will have to wait for moonrise this evening, which will occur between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. local time here in the Capital Region
According to the report, If you are hoping to capture a good super moon photo, catching the moonrise is your best bet. At this time of the day, the moon appears larger to us the closer it is to the horizon due to an optical illusion.
After this evening, the next full moon will be on March 20, and while it is also going to be a “supermoon” it won’t be quite as big as the one we'll see tonight.
