Moon over Miami

February 8 & 9, 2020

Well, OK, not really over Miami—we were on the Space Coast when we took these photos—but a beautiful moon, none-the-less!

A supermoon is a full moon within 90% of its closest approach to Earth in a given orbit.  A supermoon always appears larger and brighter than normal because the moon is closer than normal.

There will be 3 more supermoons in 2020:

Did you know that every month’s full moon has a name?  The February full moon is called a Snow Moon because February is considered the snowiest month of the year.  So says the National Weather Service!
