This year's first supermoon occurred on January 21, and there is another one happening on March 31.

The Moon orbits Earth in an ellipse, an oval that brings it closer to and farther from Earth as it goes around. This supermoon will be at its closest point to Earth tomorrow, February 19, though it will appear notably brighter and larger than usual on the days before and after, as well. There won't be another as close to the Earth until 2026. "During perigee, the distance shrinks to 3.56 lakh km and during apogee it expands to 4.05 lakh km", he explained. That's what makes it a "super moon", or "near perigee".

While the moon's brightness remains dependent on Singapore's weather conditions, the moon was expected to look "slightly larger" when compared with full moons in other months or with objects on the ground nearby.

Bad weather and heavy snows made hunting hard, so this Moon was also called the Hunger Moon. However, when the full moon got between the cloud-patches, it clearly looked like a white bright ball to the naked eye as well as through the basic camera.

A "Super Snow Moon" will be visible over Ireland tonight, February 19, and it promises to be the brightest moon of the year.
