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:
March 9, 2020
April 8, 2020
May 7, 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!
