Astro-Calendar: Feb. / Largest So-Called 'Super-Moon' of 2019

Comparison of a Lunar Perigee Full Moon, a so-called "Super-Moon," of 2011 March 19 and an average-sized Full Moon of 2010 December 20, both as viewed from Earth. This month's Full Moon (Snow Moon), which occurs on Tuesday, February 19 at 10:53 a.m. EST / 15:53 UTC, will be the largest and closest Full Moon of 2019 (and, hence, considered by some a so-called "Super-Moon"), due to a Lunar Perigee (distance from Earth: 221,681 statute miles / 356,761 kilometers) on February 19 at 4:00 a.m. EST / 9:00 UTC.
