(Gray News) – There’s a full moon starting Tuesday morning and it’s the brightest one of the year.
It’s called a super snow moon. It’s a combination of two things - a snow moon and a supermoon.
Snow moon is the traditional name for the second full moon of the year “due to the typically heavy snowfall of February,” according to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
The super snow moon officially crests Tuesday at 10:53 a.m. ET after the sun is already up, but if you catch it overnight Monday or Tuesday it will essentially look the same to the naked eye.
Enjoy your moon watching.
