While the moon looked bright and full last night, it will reach its peak full phase tonight. Since the Moon's orbit around the Earth is not perfectly circular but rather elliptical in shape, the distance between us and the Moon varies.
On Tuesday, the Moon will be 221,734 miles (356,846 kilometers) from Earth, resulting to the closest full moon to our planet in 2019, according to EarthSky.
During the phenomenon, the effects of the moon's gravitational pull on the Earth's oceans are more pronounced. Too much snow, and no one will be able to see the snow moon.
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. It is also known as the Hunger Moon because hunting was hard for the tribes due to the snow.

An Israeli nonprofit says it'll launch what it hopes will be the first private spacecraft to land on the moon this week. The average angular diameter of the moon -the angle covered by the lunar disc as viewed from the Earth's surface - is 31 arc minutes. If that happens, there's still the third and final supermoon of 2019, which comes in exactly four weeks on March 19.
To the naked eye, the visual increase in size compared to a non-supermoon full moon is negligible.
And from then on, each full moon for the next seven months will be farther away than the previous one. When this happens the moon appears larger and brighter in the sky.
